‘Food-Shaming’ Fork Vibrates When Users Don’t Pause Between Bites

A new electronic “smart fork” called the HAPIfork aims to help users lose weight by vibrating if they don’t space out their bites by 10 seconds or more, which some have called a form of “food shaming.” What do you think?

“This is just the type of tough love I needed from a utensil.”

“So far, no one else has been able to make me ashamed of my eating habits, but this fork is welcome to try.”

Robert Headley • John Deere Salesman

“I’ll just buy two so I can switch back and forth.”
