If you're someone that struggles with food allergies and eating out, the Nima Sensor food device is set to simplify your dining experience. The Nima is a portable food-testing gadget that is able to sense if the food you're about to consume contains allergens.
When eating out or purchasing pre-made food, it is nearly impossible to tell for certain if the food is free of any allergens you might have. The Nima can take out the guess work by testing your food for you. The device works by having a disposable food cartridge that users can implement portions of the meal into. Then a sensor in the device does an assay to breakdown the food. If the meal contains any allergens, a red light will illuminate to let the eater know.
Currently the Nima works for gluten testing, but hopefully the brand will expand its horizons to include all sorts of allergen testing.
