TellSpec: What's in your food?

TellSpec: What's in your food? | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it
A revolutionary hand-held device that tells you the allergens, chemicals, nutrients, calories, and ingredients in your food.
Olivier Janin's insight:

It does not exist yet, but the breakthrough is interesting. It would bridge the gap between Cal Burning trackers (like Basis, Fitbit, Jawbone Up, Nike FuelBand...) and Cal Absorption tracking (what is actually possible through heavy declarative process).  

But what is still unclear is how we could measure the weight of the food.  Additional smart plates ?
