What makes a Smart fork smart? What makes a dumb spoon dumb? Ummm…let’s answer the fork question.
This fork in particular is considered Smart because it will connect via Bluetooth to your phone or tablet and watch you eat. OK, not really watch you but it does track the number of “fork servings” (each time food is brought to the mouth) per minute.

Cyber Cutlery or Foolish Flatware? I’ll let you and your Smart fork decide between the two of you.
A simple wooden spoon can keep my pot of pasta from boiling over?
This piece of kitchen cutlery will prevent my stove from being a complete mess?

So many questions. I’ve never tried this, but I will.
