Pathogen Sensing Refrigerator

Food-borne illness are a significant concern in the U.S. Refrigerators could be equipped with sensors to detect bacterial contamination by the chemicals given off as gases by many of these bacteria. These types of sensors are already in use at the industrial level of food production. The approximate location of the contaminated food in the refrigerator would be determined by triangulation using multiple sensors placed at different locations in the refrigerator. The individual contaminated food would then be identified by passing each of the suspected items in turn directly in front of one of the sensors.

Home is where the heart is. Healthy home=Healthy heart.

Making your home into a healthy environment is necessary so we can progress to actively monitor our health needs. The healthy home will have a smart refrigerator that keeps count of calories, nutrition, and even recommends certain foods. The healthy home will also have a bacterial analyzer toilet. All this information will be sent to the central hub or a family computer. This will make it easy for new devices to be added, like glucose meters for diabetics. This system will make it much easier to make informed health decisions and keep all information in one simple location.
