Ok, have you guys heard/read about this new invention called the HAPIfork?
It doesn’t calculate calories (yet) but it does yell at you if you put too much food in your mouth. It’s embedded with sensors which calculate how much food you are putting on the fork, and how frequently you are lifting the fork and eating. The info is then transferred to a computer app which analyzes your eating habits and coaches you to make healthier decisions.
I’m going to give you a minute to form an opinion on this gadget…..
Is it bad that the first thing I did was brainstorm all the ways I could fool this fork?!?! Then I snapped out of it and realized “wait a minute, why am I trying to con cutlery?!”
HOW FAT ARE WE THAT WE NEED A FORK TO TELL US WHEN TO STOP EATING?!
We are smart enough to develop a piece of silverware that calculates food intake, but not smart enough to realize when we are full? WOW. Fat America at its finest.
When I told Nolan about this, he asked “does the spoon tell you if your soup is too hot? Because that would be useful!”
Ok, what are your thoughts?! Would you buy this product?
