Chew this over

BitBite is not alone, there are other similar

solutions now being worked in which

shows that monitoring your munching

or ingestion is an arena coming under

greater scrutiny. The University of

Alabama is working on an 'automatic

ingestion monitor', while Bite Counter has

been researched by Clemson University

in South Carolina for the past few years.

This is a wrist band that assesses the

movement of forking food into your mouth

and links that to calorie intake.

Then there's the Vessyl Smart Cup. As

reported last year by Nick Statt for CNet,

"The cup will identify and track what you

drink and how much of it… it senses the

liquid type and breaks it down to its most

vital components as soon as it interacts

with the cup's sensor-filled interior.

Caffeine and sugar amounts, alongside

calorie count and a proprietary metric

for hydration called Pryme, are tracked

through an app on your phone, and bits

of that information are also displayed on

a screen embedded within the cup itself."

Ways to measure things seem to be

expanding exponentially. You may or

may not want to take part in any of it, but

maybe some of it will turn out to be a real

boon to overall healthcare, or to diabetes

care in particularly. So keep your auditory

apertures open for updates as technology

for the ears becomes more mainstream in

health monitoring.

EAR WE GO AGAIN!

Information from the BitBite

shows bites, chews and

calories consumed.
