If you are concerned you might not be eating as healthily as you possibly can, and new gadget has been created called the HAPIfork Smart Fork which has been designed to help monitor your eating habits.
The HAPIfork Smart Fork allows you to track your eating habits and will try to make you eat healthier, eat slower and lose weight by eating at the right time and at the right speed. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the HAPIfork Smart Fork project and see it in action.
The HAPIfork Smart Fork allows you to simply and quickly monitor and reduce the speed at which you eat your meals. Slowing down and paying attention are important steps towards the goal of creating and maintaining healthier and smarter eating habits, explain the creators of the HAPIfork Smart Fork.
The HAPIfork Smart Fork monitors the following activities during your meal:
– The number of “fork servings” taken per minute and per meal.
– The specific duration of each “fork serving” interval.
– Your overall meal duration.
– The exact time at which you start and end your meal.
“When we eat by ourselves, we might also be watching television, working, or doing other things. When we eat with friends, we’re relaxed and want to have a nice time. Both these situations make it much harder to remain conscious of how quickly we’re eating. If, like the vast majority of people, you find that you’re eating too fast, HAPIfork can help you slow down.
HAPIfork records when you touch your fork to your mouth, and can tell how long the interval is between each fork serving. If you eat too fast, HAPIfork alerts you with a gentle vibration and indicator light to discreetly remind you to slow down. Over time, these repeated reminders from the HAPIfork allow you to adopt good eating habits.”
The HAPIfork Smart Fork project is currently over on the Kickstarter website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think HAPIfork Smart Fork is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help HAPIfork become a reality.
