The smart fruit ripening bowl reduces food waste in households. The fruit bowl informs users both physically and digitally when the fruit is ripened. It can also help with meal planning. It has a traffic light system to show ripening stages and connects to a smart phone via an application. It has independent sensors in separate compartments to monitor three different types of fruits simultaneously. These innovative sensors monitor the gas levels which are emitted by the fruit during ripening process and uses this to guide consumers. This product also indirectly touches the UN sustainable development goals zero hunger and climate action.
