SCiO spectrometer: a handheld physical search engine | SlashGear
Point SCiO at a leaf and your smartphone will tell you what tree it belongs to. Point SCiO at an unidentified pill on your desk and you’ll see that it’s Ibuprophen. SCiO is a device that’s hand-held, eventually aiming to be small enough to fit on your keychain, made to help you identify objects in your world.
Combine this with image-based plant morphology, and perhaps also with the detection of volatile organic compounds, and you have a very powerful set of tools for plant identification!
