What the fork?!

Eating too fast, and not chewing long enough leads to poor digestion and poor weight control.
The HAPIfork is an electronic fork that monitors your eating habits. The HAPIfork gives you precise information about your eating schedule. The HAPIfork alerts you with the help of indicator lights when you are eating too fast.
Every time you bring food from your plate to your mouth with your fork, this action is called:
a "fork serving".
The HAPIfork also measures:
• How long it took to eat your meal.
• The amount of “fork servings" taken per minute.
• Intervals between "fork servings".
This information is then uploaded via USB or Bluetooth to your Online Dashboard to track your progress.
The HAPIfork also comes with the HAPILABS app plus a coaching program to help you eat better and change your eating behavior.
It is fun to laugh at the Strabismus-grade madness of this but, dear me, we do live in a stupid and credulous age.

If it doesn't tun your stomach, there is always Dean Kamen. From the man who brought you the Segway comes AspireAssist: a pump that will “drain” your stomach through a valve inserted into the abdominal wall.
