Innovations Pick – NutriSmart: RFID In Your Food

RFID is a technology we’re starting to see all around us. Now, a company called NutriSmart is aiming to embed edible RFID tags in food to help us learn about what we’re taking in. The concept, in a very early development phase, uses a smart plate that when you put your meal on it an embedded reader will analyze the food and tell you information such as how many miles it traveled before arriving at your kitchen, provide valuable nutritional information to dieters or people with particularly dangerous food allergies, and transmit all of its history and caloric data to your phone, via Bluetooth.
