EaTheremin, the musical fork

(YouTube Link)

This screaming fork strikes me as yet another way for kids to torture their parents at the dinner table. The EaTheremin, developed by researchers at Japan's Ochanomizu University emits a high pitched sound when the food carried by the fork meets the mouth, forming a circuit. Foods have different resistences that create varying sounds. I could have my own meat and two veg orchestra but I think I'll stick with run-of -the mill utensils for now.

Not even close to a Theremin, which uses proximity of the body to change pitch and volume. More like a high school physics experiment.

How awkward she is with that fork! My guess is this is not the eating utensil that she prefers :-)
While this fork screams a long series of connected notes for her. In Texas, where mouthes are stuffed far more efficiently, the sounds would be stacato blips and bleeps; it would be more of like the song of a 90's Nokia phone ringing...

This is nothing more than the re-purposing of the drawdio circuit that went viral a few years back..
Nothing new to see (or in this case hear) ... move along
