Thanks to their long shelf life eggs are one of the items that you can easily forget buying leading to the frustrating occasions when you return home from the shops only to find you've just bought something you already have.
The Egg Minder is trying to solve this problem through the simple use of some technology and a smart phone application.
It looks like any normal egg tray but is in fact fitted with a number of sensors that let the device know exactly how many eggs are in the tray. The next time the user is in the shop about to buy eggs they can quickly check a smart phone app and see exactly how many eggs they still have in the fridge.
The device costs $49 so is not a cheap purchase, we guess it depends on just how many times you’ve found yourself having to throw eggs in the trash.
