That's what it's all about. They can extend it and suggest me workout routines for $1.99 each through their APP. Better money maker than a fork.

I would be the first to say this idea is dumb, but a few dozen of you beat me to it, so instead I'm going to be the first to mention the idea may not be as retarded as it sounds:

It takes your stomach time to send signals to the brain that says "All done! I'm not hungry anymore! Stop eating!"

Consider something like eating an appetizer at a restaurant. IDK about you, but personally, when I run out of it, I'm all "I can eat my whole meal still!". Five minutes later I get the meal and I'm like "Eh... hardly hungry anymore... I'll just try some of it now and take the rest home..."

So if the fork is coaching you to eat slower, say, to take ten minutes to eat instead of five, then maybe you'll feel just as full while eating less.

Having said that, I'd rather just use the iPhone's built in timer or something than pay for a retarded looking $100 fork.

No. The idea is as retarded as it sounds. Read a book like "The Art & Science of Low Carb Performance". Our consumption of carbs is completely broken, and no artificial intelligence in a knife, fork, or spoon will fix that. Cut the carbs, and everything will start working far better.

If you want to know how bad you just were, ask the other party. Most girls will let you know faster than any Bluetooth connection.

This device is rendered useless via a trip to your local Burger King. Most of the worst food available in the US require no utensil at all!

Lol, no one mentioned about how unhygienic it would be to use the same fork every time you ate something too, even if you did wash it before every meal.

Even worse, I suspect most people here actually use different forks every time they eat something. Even though it's been washed, it was previously used by someone else.

You use a new fork each time you eat?

SAADfork is a digital fork that wants to track your eating habits but can't quite manage it. Aww, poor SAADfork.

And the soon to be released iToothbrush will start vibrate when not used after the iFork is put aside for 5 minutes ...

Just googled and found this: http://www.geekosystem.com/tag/bluetooth-toothbrush/.

This is like buying a heart monitor that only keeps track of when you wake up every day and requires you to enter your heart rate manually.

Easy diet idea: Throw out electronic fork. Eat less. Exercise more.

I will make millions of dollars with this idea.
