TellSpec Inc. announced earlier this year that it has integrated TI's DLP technology into the TellSpec scanner. The new spectroscopy tool is billed as the world's first consumer food scanner. Scheduled for delivery to beta food testers and developers in the second quarter this year, the device is designed to identify calories, macronutrients, ingredients, allergens, and chemicals in food and beverages.

The updated model will replace lasers in the existing spectroscopy with TI's DLP technology, which "can support one million programmable micromirrors and a broadband lamp," according to TellSpec. The new model combines DLP's programmability, accuracy, and compact size "to put powerful spectroscopy tool in your pocket," according to TI.

Medical imaging

Medical imaging

VeinViewer Vision, by Christie Medical Holdings Inc., is what the company claims to be the first and only vein illumination medical device. Used in the device are near-infrared light, DLP, and other technologies.

Projected near-infrared light is absorbed by blood and reflected by surrounding tissue. The information is captured, processed, and projected digitally in real-time directly onto the surface of the skin. It provides a real time accurate image of the patient's blood pattern.

The device, taking advantage of DLP's high-speed imaging capabilities and light source versatility, is designed to help nurses, doctors, and surgeons.
