Ja­panese man­u­fac­turer cre­ates noise-can­cel­ing fork

The Progress-Index Weekend - - FOOD -

— 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.
