Baidu, China’s largest Internet search company, says it has found a way: chopsticks fitted with sensors that can be connected to a smartphone app to give users analyzed readings.
At the company’s annual technology conference in Beijing this week, Baidu Chief Executive Robin Li unveiled the prototype, called Baidu Kuaisou.
In a demonstration video released by Baidu, a chopstick was dipped into three cups, one filled with olive oil, one with regular edible oil and one with recycled cooking oil.
Readings from the smartphone app said “excellent” when the chopstick was dipped in the first two cups. But for the third cup, it said “bad,” indicating the used oil was not safe.New Chinese ‘SMART CHOPSTICKS’ can help detect bad Olive Oil,
