Japan Has Found The Solution To Emotional Eating

Today is World Smile Day! Celebrate by installing this brilliantly aggravating device on your refrigerator. :D

The "Happiness Counter" is a device that you attach to your refrigerator.

It scans your face to detect a smile. That smile helps unlock the magical sustenance within your fridge!

Developed at the University of Tokyo, the Happiness Counter is founded on the idea that smiling contributes to mental well-being.

The device is meant to facilitate smiling more often in the humdrum of daily life--especially in the lives of single householders.

Check out the technology in action:

Ugh, this fridge is so hard to open.

It requires more than just lightly tugging on the handle, ugh.

Now it's effortless!! :)

Smiling makes life so much easier!

:) :) :)

The smile lasts even beyond opening the door! Incredible!

Such endorphins!

Happy World Smile Day! :)
