Timea Hillary, the creator of Proscan, has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo in order to introduce her inspired invention to the public. This campaign has a funding goal of $50,000, which needs to be raised by April 14th in order to bring the "world's first compact food scanner" to market. Timea was inspired to create the Proscan by the nutrition crisis that is plaguing the United States, as well as the rest of the world. She states, "for those people who want to make sure that they're eating as healthy a diet as they possibly can, with as few chemicals and other unhealthy ingredients as possible, shopping for food is becoming much more difficult." However, with Proscan it is easier to keep track of the nutritional content of the food that a person is purchasing.
