The Huffington Post reports on a new app in development that will be able to tell you if a product you’re considering is truly, honestly organic.
Sensors in the device measure humidity, temperature, radiation and, something called, “organicity,” which apparently reveals how “organic” a food is. Currently in the prototype stage, the plastic and wood sensors plug into your iPhone’s headphone jack. The device pokes a piece of food with a steel probe to check the nitrate concentration, a chemical component commonly used in fertilizers that are non-organic in nature. Lapka expects to release the device in December at a price of $220.
