Toronto-based startup SKELabs is on a mission to make your kitchen the smartest room in the house.

In the video above, SKELabs founder, Madhuri Eunni explains to Get Connected TV that her company has invented the first ever 'Neo' Smart Jar. These futuristic containers are built with sensors that monitor what's been put inside of them, as well as the nutrients that particular food or liquid contains. The data then syncs with Neo's app to provide nutritional information, freshness dates, and best of all, recipes based on the ingredients you have on hand.

The invention isn't just for those looking to monitor their eating habits. According to Eunni, the jars can communicate with your online grocery cart, indicating when you are running low on your favourite foods, thus preventing you from having a last-minute cooking emergency.

Smart tech (aka Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology), according to PC Mag, was developed for computers and intended to track performance and predict failures. Today, Smart technology can be found in televisions, appliances, wristbands and even showers.

Eunni's high-tech canisters, which are now available on Indiegogo, can be filled with solids or liquids, refrigerated and put in the dishwasher.
