With a starting retail price of $199, the 10" plate is split into three sections and fitted with three digital cameras. When connected to a mobile device, the SmartPlate's app will use the data sent from the plate to calculate what users are eating and keep a record of it. The app can also be connected to other apps and wearables that track fitness and eating. After some time, it'll also start providing the user dietary recommendations.
Expected to start shipping in Summer 2016, SmartPlate's Kickstarter page is asking for individuals to pledge money towards their $100,000 goal. So far it has hit 10 percent of its target.

Anthony Ortiz, founder and CEO of Fitly, the company behind the plate, told CNBC via email that they planned on expanding their product worldwide. When asked about the plate's capabilities and limitations, Ortiz said that the plate can analyze mixed food combinations, both hot and cold.
"As we continue to grow the SmartPlate will get smarter as we also leverage consumer input. As the far as the limitations are concerned, the SmartPlate itself is not microwaveable, however we do have a portable microwaveable lid that will be utilized to heat up the food," he said.
