Sensor Egg Tray Keeps Count Of How Many Are Left [Pics]
The Egg Minder is a container that connects to your smartphone and keeps track of freshness and quantity.
In another incremental step toward a fully integrated smart home, the “internet of things” movement forges on with the recent development of The Egg Minder, an internet connected device that lets you know how many eggs remain in your fridge. The invention is the first to come out of the GE + Quirky line of products, a collaboration between crowdsourcing product development startup, Quirky, and tech multinational, General Electric. The project is intended to “return patents to their original purpose” and encourage innovation and new product development by opening up thousands of GE patents to be utilized and built upon by the Quirky community.
