Moldy apples? Rotten bananas? It happens to the best of our fruit — and quickly. In an effort to prevent wastefulness, a design student designed a bowl that detects when fruit is going to mold, according to Food Beast.
With sensors that detect increases in levels of ethylene — gas released when fruit ripens — and a light that alerts you, this bowl will let you know when you need to eat those apples and bananas before they go bad.
This technology would surely help us reduce food waste — if it were for sale. But as it was created for the Made in Brunel Show at London’s Brunel University, it’s not. But we’re hoping we’ll see this invention in stores soon. Until then, watch your fruit.
