Dinner is ready. But don't tuck in. First you need to put it through your calorie scanner.
That's the idea behind CaloRieco. Its infrared scanner measures nutrients within an accuracy range of 20%, according to manufacturer Panasonic. Current calorie scanners take between two and three minutes, the tech here works in just 10 seconds.
As well as people hoping to lose weight, the product is also aimed at those with diabetes and other diet-affected health conditions. The scanner stores nutritional data, and Panasonic hopes that eventually it will be able to suggest recipes according to users' needs.
The price and launch date are both to be decided.
