HAPILABS has introduced a new product at CES that aims to help you lose weight and improve digestion by eating at the right pace. The HAPIfork is a smart fork that lets you know when you’re eating too fast. If you eat quickly, you tend to eat more since your brain doesn’t have time to register that you’re full. The slower you eat, the faster you feel full, so you take in less calories during each meal.

This Fork Helps You Lose Weight

The HAPIfork, which was designed by French engineer Jacques Lepine, sends you vibrations and indicator lights when you’re not eating at a pace that is optimal for your health, helping you to slow down without being obtrusive.

The smart device, available in blue, green, black, white, and pink, counts the number of fork servings during each meal. It also monitors the time you start and finish your meal, the amount of servings per minute, and your meal duration.

This Fork Helps You Lose Weight

This data is transmitted to a personalized online account when you connect the HAPIfork to your computer via USB or your smartphone via Bluetooth, so you can keep track of your eating habits.

The HAPIfork will soon be available to Kickstarter backers (USB connection only) and to the public in both the U.S. and France later this year (Bluetooth connection).
