This ripe fruit detector features the ability to tell someone when fruit is going to spoil before it happens. Fruit is a gamble -- when someone is deciding on purchasing fruit at the grocery store, there's often no way to tell if a pineapple is rotten on the inside or if a mango is going to be ripe without cutting it open. This device provides insights for fruits to make the process a lot easier.

The 'Kiki Fruit Investigator' tells the user whether a fruit is ready to eat or ready for the compost. Designed by Raffaele Pontillo -- this fresh fruit detector works by sensing the gasses that are being emitted from fruit using sensors. The device can use the aromas from the fruit to inspect the ripeness by simply putting the device in a fruit basket and it will notify the user before the fruit is begins to rot.
