Seems you can buy a smart anything these days. But the ability to cram technology into a pair of chopsticks is still very impressive. This pair, on sale from today, will set you back 700RMB (£70) but they do register and tally up all the calories you are eating and alert you when you should be feeling fool.

So are you telling me that if you stick the chopsticks in one of those boiling hot soups (which Ma in Law adds all sorts of dodgy looking stuff to that you dont actually want !!) it knows what in it & tells you the calories.

However..... a fork that does something like this has been developed in the west - if you google HAPIfork you will see that there is a Bluetooth enabled fork that is designed to slow you down while you eat. Newspaper reviews of the device date from January 2013 - (not April 1st) but buyers on Amazon felt that it didn't work very well....
