To Sous Vide or Not to Sous Vide

I recently went through some medical issues which left my mouth sorely lacking in the ability to produce saliva, so I can't really eat anything dry (like grilled chicken breast). My wife does not like her food prepared with any added oil. And, I just saw a kickstarter deal for a sous vide heater/circulator for $299 (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/n...)

So I am wondering if this is something I should try to get into, regardless of if this is a decent machine or not. I have a vacuum sealer, so I really only need the heater/circulator. Is this style of cooking going to produce juicier and healthier results? If it is just a way to let food cook while you do other things, I would probably pass on it, but if it produces an end product that can be superior to other methods, I would be interested.
