Thanks to the smarties over at UC Berkeley and Taiwan’s National Chio Tung University, whenever someone asks you to taste or smell a carton of milk to determine if it’s bad, you can be spared the awful assail to the senses.
These researchers have created an inexpensive sensor that can be placed within a plastic milk cap—actually, it IS the plastic milk cap—to wordlessly determine the freshness of milk.
To top it all off, the so-called smart cap, and all of its components—see image above—are created using affordable 3D-printing—that’s the real breakthrough!
