瑞士发明会说话的盘子



Doctors have a new weapon in the battle to beat obesity – a talking plate that tells people not to bolt their food.

The Mandometer monitors the amount of food leaving the plate and tells users who gobble: “Please eat more slowly.”

Now the 1,500 Swedish device is to be used in an NHS initiative to help hundreds of obese families lose weight.

It comes in two parts – a scale placed under the plate and a small computer screen showing a graphic of the food that gradually disappears as the user eats.

A red line on the screen shows the user’s speed of eating, while a blue line shows a healthy rate.

If the user guzzles, the red line angles away from the blue one, warning them to ease off.

If the lines deviate too much, the computer voice tells them to slow down.

据英国《每日邮报》11月21日报道,医生们在与肥胖症的战斗中拥有了一项新的武器 —— 一种能警告人们吃饭时不要狼吞虎咽的盘子。

这种名为Mandometer的仪器能监视盘子中的食物量并告诫狼吞虎咽的进食者:“请慢点吃。”

现在这款售价为1500英镑(1.5万元)的瑞典仪器将被英国国家医疗服务系统所采用,用以帮助数以百计的肥胖家庭减重。

该仪器由两部分组成—— 一只放置在盘子下方的称和一只小型的电脑屏幕。该屏幕能显示出食物图像,随着使用者的进食,图像会逐渐消失。

屏幕上的红线显示了使用者的进食速度,而蓝线显示了一种健康的进食速度。

如果使用者狼吞虎咽地进食,红线就会偏离蓝线,警告使用者减慢进食速度。

如果红线偏离的角度太大,电脑语音会警示进食者慢下来。
