New fork cancels out slurping sounds while eating

(WIVB) — A new fork wants to help you with your table manners.

The $130 fork will mask any slurping sounds you make.

The handle has a microphone that picks up noisy eating.

It then sends a signal to your smartphone, which plays a louder sound to cancel out the slurping.

Some aren’t convinced. The tech group TNW even called the fork the “dumbest gadget of 2017.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
