When you're overweight, the last thing you want is a constant reminder of how fat you are. Yet that's precisely what Ukranian scientist Dr. Hryhory Chausovsky has invented. The Smart Plate is a normal-sized dish that has embedded weight sensors that track how much food you've piled on to it. The second it realizes you've doubled up on cheeseburgers, it'll scold you with phrases like, "stop right there" or "where's your willpower." You could technically get around the weight restriction by loading up on lighter foods like fries and potato chips, but for the cheaters out there Chausovsky has invented the Smart Belt, which tells you to quit eating when your waist expands too much. And here I thought Richard Simmons was annoying.
