Dinner plate that complains when you eat too fast

dinner plate that complains when you eat too fast

Swedish scientist have developed a dinner plate that will actually speak to you when you’re eating too fast. The Mandometer is an electronic scal which will fit under a plate and has a separate small screen. The food is weighed before you start eating. As you start to eat you will be able to see on the screen how fast you’re eating. If you’re eating too fast the plate will tell you to slow down.

A piano staircase or an escalator, which would you choose?

If we make taking the stairs more fun will more people choose it over the escalator? That’s a question the people at thefuntheory.com (an initiative of Volkswagen) asked themselves. They are trying to see if they can get people to change their behaviour for the better by making them have fun. The videos they made for this project are spreading quickly all over the web.
