HAPILABS is a consumer electronics company that specializes in health, nutrition, and happiness.

HAPILABS works with inventors and manufacturers of health-oriented connected devices and bring them to the platform. The first such product is the HAPIfork, created by Slow Control. The HAPIfork was unveiled at CES Las Vegas in January 2013 to widespread acclaim. The HAPIfork had its mass market release on Brookstone in November 2013, following a successful Kickstarter campaign.

Other devices in development include the HAPItrack, an activity tracker that also tracks happiness to enforce positive moments, and the HAPIband, which tracks sleeping patterns.

All devices are supported on the online platform, available for free on the Web and mobile.

HAPILABS was founded in 2013 by Fabrice Boutain (CEO), his brother Christophe (CTO), and long-time friend and collaborator Philippe Monteiro da Rocha (COO), a successful trio in Europe’s IT industry, dating back to their creation of PageFrance in 1995, which was then sold to Lycos.

To bolster HAPILABS’ operations in the United States, they tapped Andrew Carton as president. Carton himself is a successful entrepreneur with many years of global experience in promotions, online advertising, e-commerce, and digital technology.

HAPILABS is based in Hong Kong with offices in the U.S., Philippines, Indonesia, and France.
