The Ceres App Lets Users Count Their Calories by Sending in Photos

The Ceres app will make taking responsibility for one’s food intake easier than ever. The app will let users take pictures of food, which will then be analyzed by the app, giving the user an accurate calorie count.

SRI International may not be a name that many people are familiar with. This company however, is the company that brought the robotic concierge, Siri, to the world. Its newest venture comes in the form of a calorie-counting app that allows users the ability to literally gauge their calorie count at a glance.

While looking directly at food to gauge calories can be easy, things get much trickier when you throw things like butter and oil into the mix. The Ceres app handles this by taking information from other apps or pictures taken.
