DietSensor is a meal logging app that tracks what you eat, scanning the chemical makeup of the food or drink, and analyzing whether you should eat it, according to your dietary conditions.
It works through near-infrared spectroscopy, together with a Bluetooth-connected molecular sensor called SCiO, which can analyze substances based on how their molecules interact with light. This allows you to ascertain the total amount of carbs, proteins, fats, and calories. The app also works without the scanner, by scanning the barcode on your food or searching for the specific food in DietSensor’s database.
Developed after a successful Kickstarter campaign, it was primarily aimed at helping those with conditions such as diabetes or cardiovascular diseases to monitor their diet. But this nutrition app makes monitoring nutritional data easier for anyone who wants to focus on healthier eating habits. though, it was the future application of the Lytro camera to the growing world of virtual reality that is likely the company’s long-term focus. Lytro has further lured Hollywood with its partnership with Google, which helped design a cloud-based solution so that Lytro could avoid potentially enormous work flow issues on set and in post-production.
