Although there is no such automated device on the market, Webster, who works as a senior scientist at GE's labs in upstate New York, was not deterred. His specialty is diagnostics and biomedical research and he decided to build a device that could count calories in any food. "I thought that this was crazy and impossible, but I took it as a challenge," he says.
