At the new TSA RFID Food Scanner: 

"Sir, our scan indicates that you recently ingested three chili dogs and a large bowl of chili as well as a half dozen cabbage rolls.  We cannot allow a potential source of explosive methane on board an aircraft.  You'll have to wait in quarantine until the danger has passed."

 

(Pun intended!) :-Þ

@BillDChangler:" ... just scan your self for the tags still in your system, to see which food it was. ... Also uplink to The Cloud to see who else is sick on this food and post an alert to the FDA."

Oh, MAN!  A Conspiracy Theorist's Nightmare come true!  We're trying to cut down on the amount of Government monitoring!  Don't give them any more ideas or we'll all end up with probes coming out of uncomfortable places all in the name of "Protecting Your Health!"  We passed 1984 OK, but between the lawyers and the do-gooders, Gattaca is approaching faster than we think!  Actually, it's looking like a toss-up between that and Idiocracy.

Bill, i thought the ingestible  rfid chip is easy. The only problem is the antenna due to size. So my first thought i was to build an antenna out of cabbage(because some nutritionts swear of it's electrical properties). But it appears that kodak beat me to it , patenting an "organic rfid antenna". Damn.

Food with RFID

Yes I see a fridge and cabnets reading RFID tags as a certainty in our near future.  But tagging produce, is still an issue, any good old fashion food with no packaging.  But think about the implications if they could make safely eatable RFID tag to add into the food.  Then when you get a tummy ache (or worse) just scan your self for the tags still in your system, to see which food it was.  Save a lot of time and pain.   Also uplink to The Cloud to see who else is sick on this food and post an alert to the FDA.    

In short, extending the IoT to internal medicine.

My refrigerator beeps when the door is left open - why not when old food is removed?

My refrigerator beeps when the door is left open - why not when old food is removed? When RFID tags are embedded in food packaging, the refrigerator could beep when an expired food item was removed and help prevent food poisoning. Some human intelligence (or data mining by the refrigerator) could also be applied at that time: if the food had been stored for an interval in the freezer, then there might be some available time left on the expiration date. Some food also are much more at risk than others.

@Jessica Lipsky: a garbage disposal to automatically sense when veggies or milk are going bad and dispose of them!

Now, now, Jessica, we have to go green here.  We can't be putting stuff into the garbage dispoal and clogging up the waste treatment centers; they have enough shi stuff to process as it it.  After grinding things up it would have to automatically direct it to your own compost pile or to your garbage can for non-recycleables that are bound for the landfill. Plus, where it was able to, it would have to separate out the recycleables like milk cartons and plastic bags that are not compostable so they don't clog the landfill or the compost pile (or the waste treatment plant if you insist on sending the garbage down the sewer).  ;-)

I'm telling you - what the world needs is a fridge with a garbage disposal to automatically sense when veggies or milk are going bad and dispose of them!

The real question is, should the camera in the fridg be pointing in at the food, or out , to see who is opening the door?   This would do something usefull, like asnwer the question of who left the door open or who Did eat that last peice of cheesecake?

@anand, you have a point. But it's just that one extra step (to take a look inside a fridge before going out shopping, for example) is so hard to remember! I wish so often if I could call someone at home (there is none) from a supermarket, to inquire what we have and what we don't have.
