The NutriRay 3D smartphone extension is a food counter device that uses 3D scanning technology to read the nutritional value of meals and provide instantaneous data to consumers. The device offers a personal dietician of sorts to consumers without the added fees or expenses of having someone provide consultation. Instead the gadget can be used to collect accurate and knowledgable data as well as provide nutritional updates.
Going beyond the simple task of reading labels to determine calorie content, the NutriRay 3D provides a detailed analysis of the food using 3D scanning. The device hooks onto a smartphone with the scanner built in. After the food has been analyzed, the device relays the nutritional value of the food to the smartphone while simultaneously filling out a food diary for easy tracking.
