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.
The goal is to help lose weight and by being the smartest fork ever designed, HAPILABS will soon make it available for its Kickstarter backers and to the public in the U.S. and France later in the year.
