If you’ve got a habit of sticking leftovers into the fridge and forgetting about them, then you might want to look into the Peres Food Sniffer. It’s basically what it’s name implies it is: a portable gadget that “sniffs” food to determine whether or not they’re spoiled or still safe to eat. Aside from forgetful people and their doggie bags, the Food Sniffer can be used to check whether something is still fit for consumption, whether it’s expiry date is three days away or many days past.
The Peres Food Sniffer works by “sniffing” and in effect, measuring the amount of volatile organic compounds and ammonia from the food, which are released when it’s about to spoil or is spoiled.
Peres CEO Augustas Alešinas explained: “The World Health Organization (WHO) states that more than 200 diseases are spread through food, and one out of three people living in industrialized countries may be affected by food-borne illness each year. After experiencing food poisoning myself, I have decided to create a device that would help me and my family easily check the freshness and quality of our food, and PERES was born.”
Interested? The Peres Food Sniffer is currently up for funding on Indiegogo, where a minimum pledge of $120 will get you one of your very own.
