Musical Fork Plays Various Sounds While You Eat Your Food

(YouTube Link)

Eating food has become sooooo boring, but thanks to this wacky Japanese invention called the EaTheremine dinner time is now showtime!

Here's how it works:

A research group from the Ochanomizu University in Tokyo has developed a fork-type instrument that plays various sounds when it is used to eat.

Called ‘EaTheremine’ (a word play on ‘Eat’ and ‘Theremin’), the sounds that it makes changes according to the resistance value of the food attached to it.

For example, when the user is eating a piece of carrot, the device will make a ‘crunch’ sound—while eating a piece of fried tempura will cause it to play the sound “Garigori” or “Shori”, depending on the resistance.
