Star Trek-Like Food Scanner

One key worry for new parents: what is that you are feeding the child, exactly? What is that medication, precisely?

New tech might figure that out for you.

It’s easy to look past futuristic promises made on the Kickstarter crowd-funding web service — but this one checks out enough that it’s received more than $2 Million already, the TechCrunch new site reports.

SciO says its pocket-sized gadget scans food, plants and medicines, and displays their chemical compositions in understandable terms. “For long we have wondered and relied on the food labels to analyze the amount of calories in a particular item. A group of scientists has developed a tiny gadget that gives the consumers the power of learning the chemical composition of almost every consumable product, including nutritional info like calories, carbs, sugars, and more.”
