You know those moments when you’re killing it when it comes to your diet and portion control, then the next minute, you’re staring wide-eyed into a shiny, empty bag of Doritos? Mhmm… we know that situation all too well. If you’re looking for a little help tracking your daily snackage and general dietary habits, Neo is here to save the day.
Neo is a smart jar that syncs to your smart device via Bluetooth technology, plus the Neo app. Once you add food to the jar and calibrate it, Neo will take note of the expiration date, nutritional facts and how much food it’s holding. Whenever you’re beginning to run low on something, Neo will automatically add it to your mobile shopping list, and also give you the option to restock via your favorite online stores like Safeway or Amazon. But the really cool part is that Neo can give you real-time data breakdowns of calories, protein, carbs and fat when you’re cooking with ingredients stored in Neo jars.
If you’re not a master chef, Neo’s app has hundreds of different recipes, but tailors its recipe suggestions based on what you already have in your Neo jars at home. Neo also adjusts the recipes based on how many people you’ll be serving.
Just like all your other smart devices, your Neo jars will need charging from time to time. Thankfully, they charge wirelessly on charging pads, which you can place in your cabinets and fridge. Neo jars are also dishwasher safe — score!
Neo is currently crowdfunding on Indiegogo, and you can get two smart jars for $99 if you’re able to catch their early bird pledge. You can even refer three friends and get a jar for free. Be sure to check out their other pledges too!
