Pesticide Residue Checker / pesticides detector

Pesticide Residue Checker
Pesticide Residue Checker

The concept is for the family who wants to check the food safety at their own kitchen. The checker is a detector combined with timer. For checking we rotate and put it into the water with washed vegetables. The checker releases the testing liquid. After three mins the alarm will ring for reminding to check the color of the light it shows. Then we can directly identify the status of pesticide residue by the color red, yellow and green to decide to wash again or not.

It shows users the result in a simple, clear and universal way with the color of traffic light for representing the pesticide residue level, but not giving incomprehensible data.
