Scan Food for Calories

Want to know exactly what’s in everything you eat, but just can’t be bothered with the endless measuring, calorie counting, and ingredient logging? This device might be perfect for you.

After a successful Kickstarter campaign, ConsumerPhysics has unveiled DietSensor: a magical app and accompanying SCiO scanner that allows you to know the calories, carbohydrate breakdown, fat content, and protein in everything you eat – with just a quick point of the device.

It works through near infrared spectroscopy, which is a fancy way of saying the scanner figures out what the food is made up of by analysing how each of its molecules vibrates.
