Believe it or not, soon your mobiles are going to examine the calories of your food and whether its ingredients are pure or not. Beyond the sci-fi movies, it is astonishing to listen the gadgets are going to provide you with a healthy life. Israeli researchers have developed an app that can calculate the calories of food, ripening of vegetables and fruits and even analyse human tissues. Actually the gadget scans the molecular organization in the objects and gives quick review about the chemical make-up. The future of the gadget, as seen by the researchers, is to make it a biological sensor.
The anticipated technology is intelligent enough to even let you know about the chemical composition of the medicines. Actually, the vibration pattern of the molecules is used to determine the molecular structure. Every molecule vibrates in its own way and gives a particular optical pattern when light falls on it. App is connected with a scanner that scans the molecular structure. Not only can the calories of the diet be determined with the help of this scanner but also quantities of protein, carbs and fats. The scanner is connected with the smartphone via BlueTooth to provide real time results.
A technology named near-IR spectrography is used in the system. The app is given the name of SCiO. Dr. Sharon, the CEO of consumer physics says, “Smartphones give us instant answers to questions like where to have dinner, what movie to see, and how to get from point A to point B, but when it comes to learning about what we interact with on a daily basis we’re left in the dark.” He added, “We designed SCiO to empower explorers everywhere with new knowledge and to encourage them to join our mission of mapping the physical world.”
With the help of SCiO, you can calculate the macro nutrient values, spoilage, ripeness and quality analysis of almost all the edibles including cooking oils and sauces. One of the interesting uses is to let the user know when to water their plants. It actually calculates the vapor level. The company is taking interest in expanding the circle of influence of the app so as to improve the quality of life and health. The firm has motivation to make a 3rd party development toolkit in order to allow other companies to further improve the gadget. These type of technologies are sure to have an impact on the lives of the human beings.
