Home cooks or small businesses searching for a way to track food expiry dates and perishable dishes they have already prepared. Maybe interested in a new Android NFC food tracker which comes complete with an Android smartphone application, enabling chefs and kitchen staff to be notified when perishable food items may be turning. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the Acorn food monitoring system, designed and developed by Marco Tortorici based in Toronto, Canada.
Acorn has been specifically engineered to provide users with an intelligent food-tracking system for perishable food and comprises of reusable NFC tags that connect to the smartphone application, to allow you to monitor and set alerts for perishable items. “Keep track of your food items at home or at your restaurant with Acorn. Once an NFC tag has been set, you will be able to view your food items from your Android smartphone to see exactly how old each food item is, and when it will expire. Custom reminders can be set to notify you when specific food items need to be consumed by. Since the NFC tags store the food item’s information, anyone using the Acorn app can scan an NFC tag and create his/her own list of items and expiry dates on the app.”
Marco has launched Acorn via Kickstarter this month with the aim of raising CAD$66,000 over the next 30 days to take the concept into production. Pledges are now available from CAD$29, for more information in full specifications jump over to the official Kickstarter campaign page by following the link below.
