Food poisoning is the worst. Indeed, it seems unavoidable at times. After all, it’s difficult pinpointing what could make you feel ill. However, imagine seeing a meal’s health information before taking a bite.

With smart glasses, this will soon be possible. Granted, the technology is just emerging from its infancy.

Today, products including the Vuzix Blade eliminate the need to use your smartphone. Eventually, AR smart glasses will replace phones entirely.

Dieting with Augmented Reality

Already, apps like Yelp© on the Vuzix Blade allow users to access info without taking their eyes off the prize.

Consequently, the same logic could be applied to food. One day, health information could be broadcast in the corner of your eye after looking at a questionable plate of street food.

It could provide a ‘green’ rating for food that’s safe to eat. Additionally, it could display the calorie amount for those looking to cut.

Additionally, a user could flag allergies. As a result, dairy, nuts, or gluten could appear above meals under question.

This could easily be done in a user’s settings.

Ultimately, AR smart glasses will soon change almost every aspect of our lives. Overwhelmingly, this change will be for the better.

After all, there are few among us interested in suffering the consequences of undercooked steak.
