The CES 2015 hangover continues with us taking a look at the latest food related technology that was on display at this year’s biggest consumer electronics show.
Smart Diet Scale
Those of us who are fitness and health conscious or have tried dieting at least once know how difficult it is to keep a count of our calorie intake. Well the Smart Diet Scale’s newly patented version is the answer to the calorie intake question. Place a food item on the scale and its smart sensors will send the complete nutritional information of that specific food to your smartphone.
In all honesty I thought of putting this on the list of the weirdest gadgets on display at CES2015 list but after having a heavy dinner at the food street in Lahore realized how useful this belt would be. I should actually have put it in my wearable technology write-up as this Bel-T self-adjusts as you get full, a miracle for the lazy food lovers amongst us.
Dacor’s Discovery iQ 48-inch Dual-Fuel Range
This cooking range has two gas burners and two electric stoves but what sets it apart from the usual cooking ranges is the integrated Android tablet/control panel and a smartphone app which allows you to monitor your cooking from anywhere with an internet access.
Penguin food sensor
Globally more and more people are shifting towards eating organic foods. Even in Pakistan the trend for Desi/organic meat or eggs has been around for ages. Korean company Bio Sensor labs showcased their organic food detector the Penguin Food Sensor. It’s simple, take a piece of fruit or meat and insert it into the sensor and within seconds it would detect traces of pesticides or chemicals used for treating that specific food item and you would know whether the food you are having is actually organic or not.
Smarter Coffee Machine
This coffee maker developed by Smarter grinds your coffee beans and adjusts water levels as soon as you wake, detects that through the app on your smartphone. It communicates with your smartphone through Wi-Fi and also sends you alerts in case you are running out of fresh beans. The device should be out in Europe in March this year.
As in all other lifestyle aspects the Internet of Things is also going to be an integral part of our kitchen in the future.
