A tiny hand-held molecular sensor called Scio allows users to scan practically anything –foods, drinks, pills, plants, and more. It sends detailed information on the object’s chemical makeup to your phone in just a few seconds. For food, it can determine calories, ingredients, other nutrition facts and even if a vegetable is fresh and ripe.
Outside of helping consumers make healthier food choices – could this make the grocery shopping trip easier? What if shoppers could scan a food item, and a recipe popped up? Or what about an exclusive coupon that is sent to their phone after a product is scanned? How else do you think this device could be used? #MarsTalk
