With bad foods and lazy activities so conveniently accessible in modern society, it is easy to let go and lead a very unhealthy lifestyle, but the eButton hopes to change that fact. The eButton monitors and records everything a person does, from the foods they eat to the amount of time spent in front of the television, and what restaurants they visited. All of this information adds up to paint a picture that either is perfect or needs some tweaking.

Developed by researchers from the University of Pittsburgh, who were led by Mingui Sun, the eButton is equipped with cameras, GPS and an array of other sensors that allows it to collect all of this data.
