The Internet of Everything

The Internet of Everything is changing our lives and the way we do business.  We can now quantify  what we eat, when we eat, where we where when we ate, how fast we ate, determine how many steps we need to take to burn everything we ate and track our food through our intestinal tract – just to make sure.

Here are a few links that will help you achieve your goal of quantifying everything you’ve done related to food intake and exhaust:

Fitbit allows you to determine how many steps you took throughout your day, how much you weighed in the morning and how much tossing and turning you did after watching an episode of Homeland.  http://www.fitbit.com/

Hapilabs makers of the HAPIfork helps you figure out how fast you ate your spaghetti and tells you to slow down if you are not savoring every bite but for things like fish tacos or burritos – you’re on your own to figure out how long it took you to wolf those down.  http://www.hapilabs.com/products-hapifork.asp

MyFitnessPal offers free iPhone and Android apps to track what and when you’ve eaten.  They have a 2M+ database of food items with associated caloric content helping you log your every meal.  They also provide a way for you to personalize your diet and weight loss goals – so no matter which diet you are on – you can lose those last 5lbs!  MyFitnessPal integrates with FitBit and WiThings scales and several fitness trackers, pedometers and running apps.  http://www.myfitnesspal.com/

And just to make sure you can digest everything you’ve eaten… no matter which diet you are on or which tracker you used…the FDA recently approved an ingestible sensor from Proteus Digital Health.  This device promises to know when an item was really consumed – so for those of you out there that hate to take your daily medication it won’t be long before the pill itself will be telling your doctor that you took it.  http://proteusdigitalhealth.com/
