  • The Hapifork

    "I'll start my diet tomorrow."

    Many of us have said these words, but a new if slightly peculiar gadget may help you reach your health and weight goals. The HAPIfork is a smart piece of cutlery equipped with Bluetooth radio, sensors and a vibrating motor to track your eating habits.

    The fork detects how many bites you take, warns you if you're eating too quickly, and sends data to an application which can be used by the owner to take stock of how much they are consuming. The idea behind the design is that by logging your eating habits, keeping potion sizes under control will be easier.

  • The peeing boy

    A technological take on Brussel's famous statue, the Mannekin Pis, the "peeing boy" is an earphone jack accessory for your mobile gadget. 

    For $4, the accessory is designed to keep dust out of the jack, and for some audiences may provoke either amusement or horror.

  • A USB powered cat mask

    We've all seen people walking around with masks on, generally if they're unwell, but injecting some humor into the proceedings is the geeky USB powered cat mask. 

    In order to keep you cool with a fan to help you breathe, the cat mask is charged through a USB socket and -- naturally -- hails from Japan.

    To take a mask home with you, expect to to pay $33.
