Will Advanced Technology Someday Come To The Aid Of Dieters?

February 18, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Whether or not the patent applications of inventors from The Netherlands, Israel and India ever reach the marketplace as viable products, they nevertheless provide some insight into the future of technology and weight control. The Dutch inventors came up with a video/computer system  that detects when a person is eating and announces “You are now eating”. This instant feedback is supposed to help them stop eating sooner. The Israeli inventors developed a sensor that detects the digestive process, alerts stomach muscle tissue, and induces satiation, vertigo or nausea. The Indian innovators built a refrigerator that monitors eating and drinking and offers obese people diet advice.
