Smart Food Container's goal is not only to keep people informed about the condition of their food through time, but also to help preventing food waste by 1) providing a list of possibilities on how to consume each ingredient as time passes by and 2) connecting people who may use an ingredient the food owner decides not to use.
The container can take many forms: from a box to a pot, it doesn't matter. It uses an infrared type of scan to keep reading the ingredients storaged as long as it's in the container. The container can also communicate with other devices, such as computers, smartphones, tablets, tv etc, and also the internet itself, so it can look for recipes and combine them to the taste of the user.
Smart Food Container can be used in fridges or outside at normal temperature.
