Food scanner - TellSpec

This handheld product can quickly inform you about calories, macronutrients, allergens and other ingredients in your food.

The device has three components: a pocket-sized scanner to capture the spectrum of the food, a unique algorithm to analyze the data, and an app to report the findings on your smartphone computing device.

The first prototypes are being delivered in the summer and final production units, which are expected to be about the size of a computer mouse, due by year end.
