The NBT: Tagged for Freshness

Transcript

Scott: We told you about the ATMs that dispense treats, burritos, you name it. So, are these ATMs for everything the next big thing?

Eighty-six percent of you said, ‘Yes, that’s my treat!’ But fourteen percent of you said, ‘No, this bites.’

Now, ever wonder if that milk is still okay to drink? Are you sick of expiration dates or, even worse, the smell-it-to-see-if-it-is-funky test? Well, if you are, the smart tag might be for you.

The gel-based temperature-sensitive tags are placed on packaging and mimic the rate at which food goes from fresh to foul. A red tag means the food is still fresh. And as the food starts to go bad, the tag changes color. Green means food is spoiled. The Chinese researcher who invented these smart tags thinks it could help people from throwing out valuable food that is still good.

So, what do you think? Are the smart tags the next big thing? Well, head to ChannelOne.com to vote.
