The Chewing Sensor – Lord help us!
Tired of manually counting your children’s chew count? A Japanese company has the answer – called the “Kami Kami Sensor” (‘kami’ means ‘chewing’), all you have to do is hook this contraption up to their jaw and it does all the counting for you!
Based on the theory that chewing at least 30 times before swallowing is healthier on the system, you can now “condition” your children to do so. An electronic noise will beep on every 30 chews, and a pleasant melody will sound on every 1000 chews.
The sensor is reportedly easy to put on, so you should use it at every meal for full effect. It comes in two sizes – small for younger elementary school kids, and medium for older kids – and retails for only about $115.50 (11,550 yen).
