The HapiFork

Tech Industry
Hey, I'm Donald Bell here for CNET.com at CES 2013. Ripe and eating a lot of food, free food. I should complain that have been served to me, and I need to eat it very quickly, and I've learned too late that I really needed this device. This is the HapiFork. This is entering-- cake start refunding on in February and is gonna be available for $99 in the second quarter of 2013. It is a Bluetooth-connected fork as intended to help you slow down when you eat, and I really could use that right now. So it has a built-in little buzzer, like a cellphone buzzer and it can monitor when you're eating too fast, it gives you a little force feedback here on the handle to remind you to slow down. It also counts the number of times you heave food towards your face and it counts how long you've been eating. And over all, the entire idea is that it's trying to slow you down because there has been studies that have found that people who eat slower ultimately consumes less calories because their bodies registered that they're full and thereby they eat less food. It's also gonna come with a companion, the HAPItrack that will monitor how happy you are. And those moments when you're feeling especially grateful or full of glee, or maybe you're full of glum, you hold out a little button and register exactly how happy you are in a happy meter. And it seems like a silly little thing, but there's really nothing out there right now that tracks your happiness. So you can remember, here at CES, I was full of despair on Saturday, but Sunday, I came across the HapiFork, and I was very excited, so I changed my happy meter there and you can track it throughout the year, maybe-- maybe a seasonal affective disorder and you would never know until you tracked your happiness using the HAPItrack. So hopefully, that would come too. Another thing about the HapiFork, if you're wondering how it gets its charge for the Bluetooth connection, it has a built-in battery that you charge over, what I think is micro USB. Yeah, little micro USB here in the back, so can we charge this? It gives you 15 days of battery life. You can run this to the dishwasher; don't run you're battery path to the dishwasher. So long with the HapiFork, you get a companion app that'll help you track how fast you've been eating, how many vice you've been taken. How often probably you've been eating too quickly. You also get a family-focus game that will help other people in the house build competes to how slowly they can eat, I suppose. You win the race by how slow you go. You know, it's also going to be, I believe a video-- it's like a video coach to help you lose weight. For CNET.com, I'm Donald Bell here at CES 2013 with the HapiFork.
