Smartphones can do almost anything, but how about molecular physics?

An Israeli startup has embedded a molecular sensor called Scio in a new smartphone that can analyse any material — whether that's the nutritional content of an apple or a person's body fat.

Consumer Physics' scanners use infrared light to analyse molecular structure. The startup has been developing them for a few years, but this is the first time it's embedded in a mobile device — one from Chinese phone manufacturer Changhong.
