SCiO – better living through science

Scanning cheese

Have you looked at a Twinkie and wondered what was in it? What’s the chemical makeup of a Twinkie? Now you can check it out for yourself with the SCiO, a molecular sensor that you can use at the touch of button.

This little tool, it fits in the palm of your hand, can help you learn more about the world around you through the wonders of science. SCiO allows you to scan a variety of materials you interact with every day. Foods, plants, and even your medication can be scanned so you can get more information about it.

SCiO in different positions

You can use this information to gather nutritional facts about what you’re eating and even check and see how your plants are doing. It’s not a medical device and shouldn’t be used in the place of a professional but for people curious about the world, it’s a great tool. It interfaces with your smartphone to deliver information that works with a variety of apps so that you can use the information in ways that matter to you. The SCiO is on preorder right now and is $249.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
