 Microwave That Now Counts Calories!

A new technological boon has been developed by General Electric- a new microwave that counts calories in food.

Microwave will utilize the three pieces of information, which are fat content, water content, and weight. From this microwave will provide with the calorie content in the food item, reported The Verge.

The glitch with the appliance is that it only works with blended food and the food needs to be uniform to get the actual reading, which makes it ideal for liquids. The researchers are still working on application on solid food.

The aim is to calculate the calorie content within seconds. Webster's wife who was disappointed by the state of health gadgets inspired the scientists to work on this project.
