New App Detects Food Safety

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.
