It looks a bit like a stylish tube of complimentary shampoo, but Lumen is actually a device (plus accompanying app) that can measure your metabolism through your breath. Yeah! If you want to lose weight or optimise your workouts, then this little doodad could supercharge your efforts. The app can tell you what kinds of foods you can eat and when your body is currently burning fat or carbs. It can also give you tips with regards to your sleep requirements or the type of workout you need to do. How does it work? Blow into the Lumen tube and the device measures the amount of CO2 in your breath. High CO2 equates to carbs burning mode, and low CO2 is burning fat. This data is sent across to the app, which then spits out advice. The tube itself is sleek, light and has a battery life of two weeks. Sounds nifty.
