What is SCIO food scanner?
Scio is a pocket molecular sensor, which can be fit in the palms of our hand. It scans the solids, liquids or objects. We will get to know the molecular information about them to our mobile phones by using SCIO app. First of all, we need to buy the SCIO food scanner device and install the SCIO app on our mobile phone. This sensor communicates with the smart phone via Bluetooth. Generally, SCIO works on Near Infrared Spectroscopy technology which is used to measure how molecules from the sample vibrate and interact with light.
Working of SCIO food scanner:
In the above image, we can see the white color button on the device. For example, consider a sample as watermelon. Now take this Scio device near to the sample and click that white button for 2 to 3 seconds, it works by flashing a light on the sample and there will be a built-in spectrometer to analyze the light that is reflected back from the sample. And then it sends the data to your smartphone via Bluetooth. It tells us the amount of sugar, proteins, fats, and carbohydrates from the sample. So that the diabetic patients can know which material should be taken to maintain their sugar level constant and we can also reduce the consumption of high-fat content items into our body.
