FUTURE INVENTIONS

So I keep thinking wouldn't it be great to have an app where you can scan your food and it will give you the exact calories and nutritional composition without a barcode, measuring or looking it up? I'm banking on this in twenty years! Think how easy it would be to track calories! That being said, what is something you hope gets invented in the future, diet related or not?

    You'll still have to not overeat.

    This was on kickstarter some years ago.

    No idea what happened to it. I thought it could be a fun gadget, but wouldn't trust the accuracy.

    EDIT: Unreliable sources say there is a dispute about the intellectual property of the name of this product. It seems to have been shipped out for a while before this came up. I can't find experiences about the product, nor has the dispute been resolved in the year or so since it disappeared from kickstarter.

    Lol seriously! I just hate the time it takes me to log everything, especially inputting new recipes, although it isn't that bad in light of everything else (:

    Interesting! Maybe that means it's a possibility for the future then!

    Just wait for them to properly invent Tricorders. They'll do it.
