The ‘Hey Fatty’ plate

Posted by Martin on December 11, 2006

Just read this brilliant story on Techopolis – a Ukranian scientist has invented a talking plate which tells you off if you overload it with food. Put one too many burger on there and it’ll shout phrases such as ‘stop right there!’ or ‘where’s your willpower?’ It’s called the Smart Plate, although the more gluttonous among us may not agree that it’s all that smart.

And even if you do try to get around the plate’s sensor by loading up on high-fat foods that don’t weigh much, such as those cardboard McDonald’s fries, the same inventor has invented a ‘Smart Belt’ which measures when you’re starting to put on weight. Bathroom scales are so last-century.
