Nissin Foods, the manufacturer of popular ramen products like Cup Noodles, claims the best way to savor ramen is by traditional slurping. Consequently, many Westerners aren’t experiencing the full flavor, and the phrase “noodle harassment” has been invented to describe the slurping of ramen in the presence of quieter company. To remedy the situation, Nissin is selling Otohiko, a $130 noise-canceling ramen fork. It was developed by collecting and analyzing the component frequencies of different people’s slurps. Now, a bulky fork handle holds a microphone that communicates with an app in the eater’s phone to produce white noise that pleasantly drowns out any offensive noises. The concept was inspired by a Japanese toilet that similarly disguised noises. Nissin is offering Otohiko conditionally. If the company can receive 5,000 pre-orders by December 15, it will fill that many orders and no more. Unfortunately, Otohiko will not ship until well after Christmas.
