Japanese manufacturer creates noise-canceling fork
— More Content Now
To help combat the noise of slurping ramen noodles, which some people find annoying, Japanese food manufacturer Nissin developed a connected fork that can drown out the sound of slurping. When the fork is in use, an app uses the forks’ built-in directional microphone to detect the sound of slurping. When slurping is detected, a flash of electronic dance music is played to drown out the noise. Nissin is hoping to crowdfund the Otohiko fork and will begin producing the fork once 5,000 units are pre-ordered for $130.
