Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A new high-tech fork could revolutionize the way you monitor your eating.
The HAPIfork, designed by HAPIlabs was shown off at CES in Las Vegas this week.
The electronic utensil measures how fast you are eating, using an indicator light to warn you when you're chowing down too fast. It also keeps track of how long it takes to eat your meals and intervals between bites.
Information gathered by the savvy fork is then uploaded via USB or Bluetooth to a mobile app and an online dashboard to track your eating and help you keep portions under control.
HAPIlabs claims the fork can help control weight gain, regulate digestive problems and help with gastric reflux -- all by slowing down your eating.
The HAPIfork is not for sale yet, but can be preordered online.
