Have you ever looked at something and wondered about its chemical make-up? Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a fast way to get that information? SCiO has you covered. It is a molecular sensor that lets you scan objects and materials to find out relevant information on them. You can scan food, medicine, plants, and more. SCiO can tell you nutritional facts about your foods. You can even use it to authenticate your medicine. Its mobile app lets you choose how you want to use your scanner.
SCiO uses near-IR spectroscopy to get the job done. It gathers data, sends it to your phone and the cloud, and uses proprietary algorithms to give you relevant information. Another awesome Kickstarter project.
