If you can't stop eating, technology like the Food Watcher might be just for you. This gadget looks like an iPod and claims to curb your appetite by sending electrical pulses to the brain. When tested by London scientists, the Food Watcher caused students to eat less.

Priced at £99, Food Watcher is worn at mealtimes and produces a tingling feeling in the ears. Makers claim these low-level pulses stimulate the nerve in the brain which is responsible for triggering hunger pangs, tricking the stomach into thinking it is full.
