Food freshness scanner

The I Fresh is a food scanner equipped with a camera that captures the barcode on the food packaging, just before you store it in the fridge or cupboard. It hooks up to the fridge like a fridge magnet and can store data like the date of purchase. The idea behind the device is to make sure you consume fresh food and don’t eat the spoilt.

 

This is how it works:

  • After scanning, the user types in the number of days until the food expires on the micro screen.
  • I Fresh will remind the user to check the food in the fridge via light and voice.
  • A green interface indicates that the food is still of optimal nutritional value. When the interface turns orange, it indicates that the expiry date is drawing near.
