We often wonder what the ingredients of a particular dish or a food item that we love to devour are. Whenever we visit the cafes or restaurants, we always look at the food and try to determine the contents and calorific values of it. Some are clear, and some ingredients are not very clear. TellSpec is a device for health-conscious people and food connoisseurs. It is helpful for use in smartphones. You can scan the food using the camera of your phone, and it shows you the list of ingredients and its nutritional value.
When you place TellSpec scanner over the food, it projects a low powered laser beam on the menu. Some of the photons are absorbed, while they raise the energy of the molecules in the food. All these photons classify according to their wavelengths that define the quality and nutritional values of the food.
This device is ideally a futuristic gadget developed by Yanko Design. You can scan something from a surface and paste it on another cover with just a push of a button. You don’t need a photocopy machine or a substantial, bulky printer to accomplish the task. With this device, it would be easy to transfer text and images from one place to another.
A button on the bottom side of the device activates the scan function, and the button above the machine does the pasting that is, printing the chosen material. This device can directly print in the notebook hence removing the need for additional paper.
It is an electronic pen with which you can write anywhere, virtually. It was developed by OTM technologies. It is best when people don’t have a pen to jot down their ideas or thoughts.
