Want to Know How Many Calories Are in Your Food? This Gadget Tells You

SCiO is a pocket-sized molecular sensor patented by Consumer Physics Inc., a startup based out of Tel Aviv, Israel. By placing the sensor near an object and pressing the button for two seconds, SCiO can immediately analyze the object’s chemical makeup and send the information via cloud to the user’s smartphone, which then shows the desired information on the screen.

While the company has a working prototype of SCiO, the finished product has yet to be created. The device’s developers began a Kickstarter campaign to raise $200,000 toward the project. More than 11,000 people have pledged their support, skyrocketing SCiO’s financial backing to almost $2.5 million.

Backers will receive the SCiO when it ships in December 2014.
