At the CES HAPILABS introduced the HAPIfork – the smartest fork ever that helps you lose weight and improve digestion by eating at the right pace. When you’re eating too fast, you ultimately end up eating much more because your body and brain doesn’t realize you’re full. When you control the pace at which you eat you feel full, resulting in less calories being ingested and weight control.
Designed by French engineer Jacques Lepine, the HAPIfork sends a vibration and turns on indicator lights when it feels your not eating at the best pace for healthy eating. The smart fork, available in various colors, also monitors number of fork servings per meal, start and finish times of meals, and servings per minute it then sends the details back to an accompanying web app for analysis.

Fragmentation, it’s a word that is the inevitable hatred to fuel the hearts and minds of every Android developer. AppThwack hopes to relieve that frustration by rapidly testing apps on 100s of real, physical devices in parallel so you don’t have to. What’s that? It must be the sound of developers around the world exhaling in appreciation.
Founded by Trent Peterson and Pawel Wojnarowicz, whom have previously worked at Intel, launched their savior for developers back in July and since has preformed over 1,120,000 tests for Android and HTML5 apps. You simply drag and drop your app to its site and AppThwack begins running its tests. You then get results on how effective or poorly your app is running in the fragmented landscape of Android devices. Results are filled with stats, logs and screenshots to help discover and debug issues easily.

Internet marketers and startups hoping to optimize their website’s landing pages can pursue a large number of different avenues. There’s no shortage of developers out there willing to design and deploy exciting new creative and copywriting on landing pages to either launch a promotion or perform A/B testing to find out what combination of imagery and call to action banners works best. However, these options, as interesting as they are, take time. They take resources too. Whether managing the landing page creating in house or working with a contractor the fact remains that landing page creating and testing requires careful administration, lead time, and money.
Enter “unbounce”. Unbounce provides firms who are looking to manage their landing pages with a solution that enables effective landing page creation, publishing, and testing without the usual need for advanced IT knowledge and developers. As mentioned previously, the options available to any startup who would like to manage their landing page creation and testing are numerous, however the choices available to a firm who would like to accomplish the same goal without a developer are significantly fewer.
In other terms, ‘hype’ is a concept that equates to a high level of anticipation. It is something that is invisible, but not only does it exist, it has become a driver of consumer behavior in today’s world. In a product’s pre-release stage, it is something that is quantified by outdated and unreliable means, and by traditional outlets such as surveys and clustered compilations of chatter from social media. Hypejar aims to funnel the ‘hype’, capture it in a single container to quantify, and to then present it to the world. A website dedicated to sharing details on all products that the mainstream wants to be aware of, but is yet-to-be-released and presenting it in one place.
The Montreal-based company launched their beta site back in September with a very simple idea – organize all the products that are about to be released and make it more easy-to-find instead of scouring multiple sources. A sneak peak if you will, at the future of consumer products. Co-founder Grant Yim says:
