Shark Tank season 7 episode 17 introduces an entrepreneur pitches a smart plate containing food-recognition technology that could solve all your dieting problems; two energetic women have created a sweetener that tastes like honey, but is not made by bees; the Sharks crack up at the sight of an entrepreneur’s unique spa business for babies; and a perhaps too-confident Stanford grad believes he’s at the forefront of where high tech meets fashion for men’s custom shirts. In a follow-up on Ilumi, the company in which Mark Cuban invested in during Season 5, we see how their wirelessly controlled LED lights have illuminated the business world.
