HAPI-ness in your hand

HAPIFORK MobileThis is the HAPIfork designed by French entrepreneur Jacques Lépine and is due out later this year. The ‘world’s first connected fork’, it aims to modify eating behavior by slowing down how fast people eat and helping them be more present during meals. This mindfulness leads to an overall healthier state of being and living. Lépine’s idea was based on research which shows that by eating more slowly, people can improve the way they feel, improve their digestion and lose weight.

Inspired by Voltaire, the 18th Century French Enlightenment philosopher who said, “I have chosen to be happy because it’s good for my health,” the HAPIfork can incorporate important aspects of life such as nutrition, physical activity, sleep, relaxation, and—more generally—health. It does everything but blood tests, apparently. It works by monitoring how fast people eat, then slows them down. It comes in three colors (pink, green and blue) with a color coordinated case so it’s easy to carry everywhere. The product will initially go on sale in the US and in the EU nearer the end of the year, and will prices around £75.
