We’re all used to typing in what we need to know on our phones. But what about the physical world around us? There’s no way to Google physical objects, Wired explains in this article about a scanner being developed in Tel Aviv. Imagine running this scanner over a pill or piece of fruit to find out the molecular breakdown. We can’t do that now. “That needs to change, says Dror Sharon. He’s the co-founder and CEO of Consumer Physics, a Tel Aviv startup trying to fill that gap with a handheld device called Scio. Scio is a scanner, about the size of a flash drive, that can determine the molecular makeup of objects like food and medication.”
