find own fruit / Detector

find own fruit

This product is designed based on the maturity of fruits.We used to have difficulty in picking out the fruits that we like since we judge them merely by knocking,color,smell to distinguish whether the fruit is ripe,which is not commonly used and sometimes one-sided.Connecting with the iphone,the designed product simulates the action of people’s picking out fruit,with more scientific indicators to identify whether the fruit can meet consumers requirements.We will eventually get the analysis of fruits by three indicators: ethylene content (smell), echo detection (knock),skin color (see), which will be compared with the ripening data standard.
