This Bluetooth Fork Should Shock You When You Overeat, But It Just Vibrates [CES 2013]


CES 2013 bug

LAS VEGAS, CES 2013 – If you think you’ve seen it all, think again. Straight out of CES this year comes what appears to be the world’s first Bluetooth-enabled fork. As crazy as it sounds, the concept behind it is actually pretty simple.

The fork senses the interval between the bites you take, and alerts you if you’re eating too fast. By using Bluetooth, it works in conjunction with an iPhone app which lets keep track of your data, and hopefully eat slower, which provides numerous health benefits.

What do you think? A crazy gadget, or a useful tool to encourage weight loss?

    While eating slower does mean you typically eat less, this fork is still pointless because eating cake v salad makes it moot how fast you are eating
