Eating healthily has never been more fun thanks to Pixelate by Sures Kumar and Lana Z Porter, two artists at the Royal College of Art in London, England. It involves a hacked dining table with a built-in digital screen. When paired with a special fork that detects what food the players are eating, the table becomes a sort of Guitar Hero style game.

Essentially, Pixelate tells players what to eat and when. It was created to encourage children to eat healthier types of food. By making it a competition, with more points allotted to better food items, that becomes a relatively easy task. It was exhibited at the Henry Moore Gallery in Royal College of Art.
