Using Changhong H2, consumers can analyze the properties of foods, liquids, medication, body metrics, and much more. This will give consumers new ways to improve their personal wellness, select the best fruits and vegetables, stick to their diets and nutritional needs, and verify product authenticity in ways never before thought possible. Changhong is also working to create a broad eco-system of mobile applications that utilize the SCiO sensor for a wide range of use cases.
Everything in the world is comprised of molecules and, theoretically, the H2 smartphone can be used on almost any material. It's a smartphone that creates miracles. From identification of compositions like alcoholic drinks, to process control - with the right apps and corresponding database, it can create experiences beyond our imagination.
Obviously, if this works anywhere near as well as claimed, the impact on video analytics, among other things, could be immense.
I know someone who got one of the SCiO stand-alone sensors from ConsumerPhyscis and posted some demo videos of it on Facebook (it was the unboxing video referenced here, but later taken down). Overall, the results were unimpressive.
All indicators right now are that we are a long way from having a sensor like this that produces accurate/repeatable results with much usable value.
