Forks Go Connected with HAPILABS HAPIfork


CES 2013 is ready to kick into gear. Judie and Kevin arrive late today. Carly will be here Tuesday. This is my 4th CES and we’ll be busier than I can ever recall. That’s a good thing. I’m especially looking forward to wandering the show floor as there are always some unexpected treasures. I do not, however, expect this to be one of them.


The HAPILABS team will be showing their new HAPIfork, the world’s first connected fork that helps you lose weight by eating at the right time and at the right pace.


Yes, the world’s first ever connected fork will be on site for CES 2013. It does, however, raise some interesting questions. Questions like-
Do I really need a vibrating fork?
Does this mean I have to carry my fork with me everywhere I go just like they did in the old days?
Do I need to recharge daily or does the motion of raising the fork to my mouth recharge the battery.
And if it does recharge the battery doesn’t that mean I should eat MORE?
And the final two questions.

Is it dishwasher safe?


Just because I CAN app-enable a product does that mean I SHOULD?

We have charged Carly with tracking down this technological wonder and providing some hands-on thoughts. Stay tuned.

  1. This totally made me think of the fake bamboo chopsticks with moving advertisements (in Chinese) running down them described in Neal Stephenson’s “The Diamond Age.”

  2. I am also extremely skeptical and expect it to be ‘crap science’ at best based on their website …
