I want one of these things right now. I’ve seen it before in news stories, maybe a year or so ago, but a device like this would help those who have little, to no confidence when dining out, or those who are newly diagnosed – basically, just anyone with Coeliac Disease.
You just simply put a bit of your food into the device, press the button, and wait 2 minutes, and if it brings back a smiley face, you’re all good to go. If, however, it brings back ‘gluten detected’, obviously go ahead and throw that food away.
This device will help highlight restaurants that really need to step it up in the cross-contamination area. Hurrah! The product is going to cost £130 and will be available to purchase late 2016, so sign-up to the Nima Sensor waiting list, to get product updates here.
Nima have also just last week, launched their IOS-based keyboard emojis, called Nimoji – I see what they’ve done there. Nima has stated that…
“The Nimoji keyboard offers nearly 50 emojis for people who are gluten-free, vegan, kosher or have other food intolerances to positively express their food identity and better manage their dining experiences. Nimoji is for the people who haven’t been able to use the taco, pizza or beer emojis. It celebrates food inclusivity, speaks to this community’s passions and daily life and gives them a voice.”
