3 High-Tech Food Sensors That Will Change the Way You Eat

There’s a new wave of gadgets that are helping us eat. They’re smart enough to tell you what's in your meal, and small enough to fit in your pocket. Bradley Hasemeyer has three high-tech food sensors that will help with your diet.

1.  SCiO

It’s a tiny molecular sensor that says it can tell you the nutritional content of whatever it's scanning. It uses a spectrometer to look at a food’s unique fingerprint -- giving you info like calories, carbs and protein. SCiO will also help you pick the perfect produce, helping you tell which melon is sweeter, or which avocado is about to ripen. You can pre-order one for around $250 and they ship this March.

2.  Nima Sensor

This gadget is for people staying away from gluten. You simply place a tiny piece of the food in question inside Nima, it scans it and about 3 minutes later flashes you a smile for gluten-free, or a frown if it senses gluten. It's still in development but you can sign up for updates.

3.  TellSpec

This is another spectrometer that'll tell you what's inside your food. You simply hold it up to what you want to analyze and it tells you the results on your smartphone. Pick one up for around $500 and they start shipping next year.
