Smart Labels

Pasta sauce and mango puree are the two things I most often find mildewing in my fridge. I like to keep some around but just don't use it often enough. Then there is that odd left-over from a week ago that I end up throwing because I did not get to it on time.

A label that monitors how long the food has been lying around is a great idea. I wonder if the capillary action technology on which this is based would work for fresh produce as well. That would take care of all the forgotten cucumbers, squashes and bell peppers as well.

If we could go ahead and RFID the label and have it beep me on my cellular life would be just picture perfect - sometimes there is no such thing as too much of a good thing.
