Imagine this. A gluten food sensor.  

In January 2018, Nima announced their new sensor at the Consumer Electronics Show, an annual tech and gadget convention. The internet has been buzzing for the last 6 months.  

The company is not stopping there. It plans for the next two years to have sensors to detect peanuts, tree nuts and milk ingredients. I am sure some parents whose children have anaphylactic allergies will like this. I feel they should still carry an EPI pen with them for severe allergies  

The cost is anywhere from $230 to $299 per unit, plus $5 per capsule for each test. It can fit inside a purse or bag, and two minutes after loading the food, you will have your answer.  A safe way to eat?

Until tomorrow...
