Have you ever wanted to have a magic wand and instantly find out how many calories your food has? This is exactly that. It is an Scio, small new device that scans your food to find the ingredients that contain – calories, carbohydrates and fat. With its help, you can regularly follow the intake of food and thereby to get a plan for how to improve your diet.
How does this work exactly? Tool Scio uses the molecular light sensor to identify the chemical composition of food, and can scan even the specific ingredients, such as for example cooking oil. All this information you can see on the application called DietSensor, which also provides advice on your diet. This application even received an award for innovation this year.
For now, the scanner works best with homogeneous foods such as bread. However, the company said that most people are using this tool to scan another type of food, and as more data collects, the more accurate it will be.
Although it is available to anyone who wants to buy, this tool is mainly aimed at people with diabetes and other health problems that include specific diet. In fact, the idea of making such a tool comes from a French company, after the daughter of one of the founders in 2014 was diagnosed with diabetes type 1.
This tool is expected to cost $ 249 and be put on sale the first half of this year.
