Nima

Gluten-free living is more than just a diet fad; millions of people with severe food allergies and sensitivities truly can’t stomach the stuff. This makes dining out difficult, because waiter assurances can’t always account for trace levels present in restaurant meals. Nima is a small, triangular device that tests food on the spot. Users fill a small disposable capsule with a teensy portion of their dish and insert it into the Nima sensor; inside, that sample is ground up and mixed with liquid chemicals, which analyze the results in two minutes flat. A smiley face means it’s safe to eat—no gluten!—and a sad face means no tastes of that dish tonight.
