Scientists at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow are trying to prevent you from ever eating rotten lunch meat again with their new intelligent plastic indicator. The intelligent plastic indicator is a new type of food wrapping that would change color when fish, salad or meat starts to go bad.

The idea behind the intelligent plastic indicator is to keep people healthy while also preventing them from unnecessarily throwing out good food. According to lead researcher Andrew Mills, the new food wrapping could be on store shelves in as little as two years. Stats for Spoiled Food Detectors Trending: Older & Chilly
