This Necklace Can Tell What You're Eating By How it Sounds Going Down

The latest issue of IEEE Sensors Journal describes the development and testing process for AutoDietary, a device that lets you monitor what you eat by listening in on your eating process. The necklace contains a small microphone worn against the throat, so it can monitor the different crunching sounds a person makes when they chew as well as the sound the food makes when they swallow it down. The project is headed by Wenyao Xu, an assistant professor at the University of Buffalo, and the archivist of the world's first "food sound library." The library allows the AutoDietary device to identify what their wearers are chewing and swallowing.[6]

Passwords Can Be Replaced With Heart Identification

The University of Buffalo believes it has a better biometric security solution, and it uses your heart. Wenyao Xu, PhD, the study’s lead author, and an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the university, created a system that uses a low-level Doppler radar to assess your heart. The reading of your heart takes roughly eight seconds, with the reader being about five milliwatts. A unique identity can be created from the data collected, which takes into account the geometry of the heart, its shape and size, and how it moves.[7]
