Electronic Nose "Sniffs" for Food That's Gone Bad

Posted: Updated:
It's small, but already catching on in a big way.  An electronic "nose" to detect food that's gone bad. 
   
It's called "Peres," and it - along with your smartphone - is coming soon to a restaurant and kitchen near you. 
 
Peres detects compounds in food that show age, or spoilage.  It sends the data instantly to your mobile device, via bluetooth, to warn you if food is bad. 
 
Eventually, this kind of technology will likely be embedded inside your smartphone, maybe even your smart refrigerator. 
   
If you're interested now the Peres itself will go on sale this summer. 
   
It's expected to cost about 120 dollars each.
