Food poisoning and related diseases are an issue North Americans deal with often. Between shopping at chain grocery stores with mass-produced products and restaurants that can't always be trusted to use grade A ingredients, we constantly leave our own health in others' hands. With the Peres e-nose, you never again have to worry about that again.
Peres is a handheld device that can sniff out spoiled food. It uses sensors that can calculate temperature, humidity, ammonia and detect volatile organic compounds. It is able to detect over 100 of these compounds, as many act as strong indicators of food freshness.
The device connects to a smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth and takes about three to five seconds to calculate results. Your screen will display a bar graph along with additional information about what Peres detected.
The developers of Peres are currently running an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for their product. With only a couple of days remaining in the campaign, they have far surpassed their goal of $50,000 and have raised more than $70,000. Learn more about the Peres e-nose in the video below.
