The ConsumerPhysics SCiO food scanner is a handheld device that analyzes the content of sustenance and medicine. Developed in part by ConsumerPhysics CEO Dror Sharon, the product aims to outdo akin spectrometers by way of its miniature size and affordable price range.

Those who make use of the SCiO begin by shining its light on objects. After the items have been identified, the machine relays certain types of information such as caloric counts and genuine versus counterfeit ingredients.

Smartphones are also applied to this analytical procedure. Once the data has been registered, it is sent to phones for touchscreen display. Although similar spectrometers are already for sale, the Tel Aviv-based startup hopes to dominate the market with its tiny dimensions.
