RunPee

Yep, you guessed it! RunPee is an app that will tell you the best time to run and pee during a movie without missing the best scenes.
This app also tells you if there’s anything extra after the end credits?  Plus it will tell you how long the credits are and if the extras come at the end or during the credits.

So that the app doesn’t interrupt the movie experience, you can start a timer at the beginning of the movie, and the app will vibrate for you when it’s time for a pee break.

On top of all those features this app also gives the top ratings and reviews on the movies.

This is an excellent app for movie lovers out there!!

The app uses both WiFi and Bluetooth to connect devices and share files. Photos, videos, contacts, notes and games are available from within the app. Sharing other files such as Keynote, Pages and Numbers documents are handled via the “open in another app” feature from those apps.

HAPIfork

HAPIfork: Eat slowly, lose weight, feel great!

I know that one of my biggest problems is that I’m always running around so much that when I get a chance to eat, I typically inhale whatever I’m snacking on at the moment. Which leads me to feeling horrible moments later since I ate too quickly. A new technology tool is out there to help you monitor the effectiveness of your eating.

Eating too fast leads to poor digestion and poor weight control. The HAPIfork, powered by Slow Control, is an electronic fork that helps you monitor and track your eating habits. It also alerts you with the help of indicator lights and gentle vibrations when you are eating too fast.

Every time you bring food from your plate to your mouth with your fork, this action is called: a “fork serving“. The HAPIfork also measures:

* How long it took to eat your meal.
* The amount of “fork servings” taken per minute.
* Intervals between “fork servings”.

This information is then uploaded via USB or Bluetooth to your Online Dashboard on HAPI.com to track your progress. The HAPIfork also comes with the HAPIfork and HAPI.com apps plus a coaching program to help improve your eating behavior.

Why is it important to eat slowly?

Originally developed by Slow Control for clinical or medical use, HAPIfork has today the potential to become a must-have utensil for everyone, available in every kitchen.

Since 2002, a series of scientific studies highlighted the negative effects related
to eating meals too quickly:

  • Weight gain: as during the meal, satiety is felt after about 20 minutes. The faster you eat, the more you eat.
  • Digestive problems: food that is eaten too quickly is often poorly chewed. The work of the digestive tract is made more difficult.
  • Gastric reflux: several studies have shown that the faster one eats, the more likely the possiblity of gastric reflux.
  • Postoperative complications: eating more slowly lessens the stress on weakened tissues.
