ripeSense Produce Sensor

Posted by Andru Edwards - Categories: Misc. Tech


Alright, I will let you in on a little secret of mine. I absolutely hate the produce section. Why? I simply don’t know what the heck I am supposed to be looking for in there. Too hard, too soft, too green…it’s just a nightmare. The fine peeps over at ripeSense must have heard the calling of many a confused shopper, as they have released a nice tool to aid in the fine art of produce shopping. ripeSense is simply a colored sensor that changes color based on how ripe the fruit is inside the container. No need to even squeeze the darn things, as the package lays out exactly what the color stages are for you! Currently, they have only released the version that tells you how the pears are doing - but wait just a little while longer, and there will be ripeSense sensors on kiwfruit, melon, mango, avocado and stone fruit. Holla!

i think i’m going to continue to squeeze, poke, and prod. this color coding system just doesn’t cut it for me.

It’s got a double-purpose.  grin  1. For telling you how ripe the produce is, and 2. For preventing the spread of germs on all your filthy hands! Mwahaha! tongue wink Just kidding
