Back in May, we told you about the former Apple employee who was inspired by Apple’s on-campus cafeteria to create his own health-tech product.
Called SITU scale, the smart food scale connects to an iPad and weighs any food you place on it in calories and total nutrients in addition to grams and ounces. Having surpassed its Kickstarter goal by raising a total of almost $60,000, SITU creator and former Apple employee Michael Grothaus has announced that preorders have begun — with a promised delivery date of early March.
“It’s been a crazy ride to get here, but it’s been so worth it,” Grothaus says. “Choosing to Kickstart SITU was the best thing we could have done — and Cult of Mac was a big part of its success. I invented SITU because I wanted to lose weight and designed it with my needs in mind, but through all the open dialog with backers and people who would send us emails, we ended up making the product so much better.”
