Monitor your eating habits with the smart fork

By James Fung

A sudden buzzing and the flashing of an LED light disturbs your meal. You fumble about and dig out your mobile phone from your pocket. There is no new message. Instead, there is a gentle reminder from the HAPIfork.

HAPIfork is an electronic fork that helps you monitor your eating habits. It will alert you with vibrations and indicator lights when you are eating too fast. How does it work?

The smart gadget monitors your habit of fork serving. Fork serving is the action of bringing food from your plate to your mouth. By counting how long each fork serving lasts and the number of fork servings per minute, HAPIfork analyses your eating habits and helps you improve them.

So what is wrong with eating too quickly?

Well, for one thing, it can lead to digestive problems, such as gastric reflux, which are common among urbanites.

Plus, eating quickly often also means eating more, making one more susceptible to obesity and heart disease.

Regulating how quickly you eat means regulating your health.

HAPIfork does not just remind you when you are eating too quickly, it also provides you with data. There is a USB connector under the plastic cover at the bottom tip of the fork. Once it is connected to your personal computer, you can assess the complete data on your eating habits. The speed at which you eat will be shown in a reader-friendly line graph.

You can register an online dashboard at With the account, users can set objectives, such as target eating speed, and track their progress. In this way, you can make comprehensive plans to adjust your eating habits.

The fork also comes equipped with Bluetooth, so you can connect it to your smart phone with the HAPILABS iTunes or Android application. Then, you can keep track of your fitness progress any time, anywhere.

With the mobile application and the online dashboard, you can even share your fitness progress as well as photos and videos with others on the HAPIfork network.

And just in case you are wondering how sturdy it is, the HAPIfork is highly resistant to breakage and water. You can wash it with the dishes, or even put it into the dish washer. No damage will be caused.

So even when your meal is constantly disturbed, don’t get frustrated and stay calm. You are on the way to a healthier lifestyle. If your HAPIfork does not vibrate any more, congratulations (unless the fork has actually run out of power).
