OurCrowd’s portfolio company Consumer Physics was featured in VentureBeat, a leading technology website. Consumer Physics has developed the world’s first affordable molecular sensor – the SCiO – that fits in the palm of your hand.

Consumer Physics wowed everyone last year when it announced the Scio, a handheld device that used light to scan food, pills, or plants and tell you the chemical makeup of the object.

Now the Tel Aviv, Israel-based company has shown a miniaturized version of the Scio that it is preparing to ship to developers and early supporters of its successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign.

Seeded by OurCrowd and top tier Silicon Valley VC Khosla Ventures, Consumer Physics raised $3,300,000 from OurCrowd investors in its 2nd round of funding in May 2014.
