Ever had a craving to eat spaghetti like Metal Mickey? Well crave no more, robot fans.

Cutlery boffins this week unveiled the vaguely sinister HAPIfork, which works as an MK Ultra-style ‘diet aid’, vibrating and lighting up if you scoff your dinner too quickly. Eating more slowly makes you feel fuller, apparently.

The futuristic fork is set to cost £60 when it goes on sale - so not only will you look like a snacking C-3PO, you won’t be able to afford food anyway. It’s a slimmer’s godsend!
