Just like your mother, it will tell you when you're eating too quickly.

Many of us eat too much food, too often and too quickly, and not just during the holiday season. But Hapifork can help. It’s an innovative, digital solution that can analyze your gestures when you eat. Press your fork into your food, swipe up to your mouth, and pull the fork away, and Hapifork will track the time you take between bites. Ten second pauses make Hapifork happy. Faster than that, and the fork tells you to slow down by vibrating when you bring the fork to your mouth. It’ll sync with a smartphone so you can track your progress, and though it won’t control your food choices or the size of your forkful, it just might slow you down before you eat too much. If you can stomach the $100 price tag, Hapifork might be the next step in wearable technology for you.
