Food scanner and 3D printed homes! Whhaaat?
First, the magic food scanner...
TellSpec is a gadget that tells you exactly what is in your food beyond the nutrition facts.
Taken from the article ->There’s an in-depth, scientific explanation for how TellSpec works (check out their indiegogo campaign to get the full-blown low-down), but basically it’s a three-part system comprised of a spectrometer scanner, an algorithm, and an app on your phone. When you scan food or drinks, a laser beam changes the energy levels of some of its molecules and records that reaction. That data is analyzed by the algorithm, then beamed to your phone in the form of well-sorted results: ingredients—including allergens—chemicals, and nutrients are categorized by a green-yellow-red color system that seem to designate the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Secondly, Massive 3D Printed Homes. #win
A process called Contour Crafting "is a layered fabrication technology developed by Dr. Behrokh Khoshnevis of the University of Southern California". This technique can build a 2,500 square foot home in roughly 20 hours.
If these two technologies didn't blow your mind… I don't know what to tell you.
