Fitly, the meal-kit delivery service for weight loss, is developing a plate called SmartPlate. It can weigh your food, count the calories and then send that data to your tracker. Fitly started a Kickstarter campaign this week. They need $100,000 to build “the world’s first Wi-Fi- and Bluetooth-enabled hardware device that instantly tracks and analyzes what you eat with the support of a mobile application.”
Each plate will have three cameras, and sensors to weigh the food. And don’t worry if you forget to bring your plate to work, the app also has a scanner so you can scan the barcodes of that healthy granola bar and yogurt you’re dying to eat. If Fitly gets the $100k, SmartPlates will be ready to ship by summer 2016.
