Abstract

We propose “EducaTableware (Educate/Tableware), ” a design for interactive tableware devices that makes eating more playful and improves daily eating habits through auditory feedback to encourage specific mealtime behaviors. We have developed a fork-type device for use when eating. This device emits sounds when a user is consuming a food item. In this paper, we discuss the EducaTableware concept, describe the implementation of the fork-type device, and conduct a user test with child subjects for one week.
