There is literally nothing worse than being stuck with someone who eats loudly.
No matter how loudly you play music through your headphones, you can still hear them slurping, crunching, chewing.
So imagine the joy of having a fork which actually cancels noise.
Well, Nissin has developed just that – a noise-cancelling ramen fork.
NO MORE SLURPING, PEOPLE.
It’s quite pricey at $130 (£98) but silent chewing is priceless.
So, how does The Otohiko fork work?
It features a massive handle that’s supposed to cancel noise while you eat by allowing your phone to create even more noise.
It works in partnership with an app on your smartphone which will play white noise, drowning out any slurping.
The handle has a microphone embedded in it which can pick up on your horrible sounds and tells your phone to burst into loud noise.
So good news for any misophpobic ramen lovers.
But no doubt there’ll be plenty of folk out there who like eating in a massive white noise cloud…
