Phillips has teamed up with some clever designers to create a Food Allergen Detector that can tell you if the meal you just ordered has any unwanted allergens in it.
It seems like this is becoming more and more commonplace.  All the peanut allergies for one are staggering.  What have we done to ourselves that our children's throats will close over if they even get a momentary whiff of peanuts?  It didn't used to be that way, but I guess these aggressive food allergies are here to stay.

The lengths people will go to just to make sure they're protected against these deadly foreign agents is pretty wild.  Short of tattoos and high maintenance restaurant ordering procedures, I guess a food allergen detector might be a nifty little device.
