Designer Jagjit Chodha created a fruit bowl that detects when your fruit is about to go bad. The bowl was designed in an effort to reduce the exorbitant amount of food that is thrown out every year. By warning people when their fruit is about to grow mold, users can eat it before it has to go to the landfill.

Chodha's fruit bowl knows when your fruit is about to grow mold by using chemical sensors. The sensors detect ethylene which is released by the fruit over time. As soon as ethylene levels get to a certain point, the bowl knows that the fruit is at its breaking point.

The bowl was created and showcased at the Made In Brunel Show in London, England. Stats for Mold-Exposing Fruit Bowls Trending: Older & Mild
