Here's something new and interesting. We just happened across this "freshness detector," which promises to determine the freshness of your meat and poultry.
Have you ever seen such a thing?
Apparently it uses "advanced QCard™ sensor technology" to measure the bacteriological activity that may be happening in your meat. You aim the little nozzle at your uncooked meat and poultry, and colored lights confirm its freshness in less than a minute. It uses two standard AA batteries, and it comes with two QCards, which are only good for about 200 uses. After that they have to be replaced.
Does anyone know anything about this technology? We've never heard of it, and we're wondering what benefit it offers.
