Is a Quirky Milkmaid the Milk Jug of Tomorrow?
Founded in 2009, Quirky is a website where designers can submit ideas for new products and gain valuable feedback from the public. A few months ago Quirky, together with GE, launched a competition to find inventions which improve everyday life.
The winning entry is the Milkmaid – a smart glass milk jug which can alert you when the milk is about to go off! You pour your milk into the Milkmaid and place it into your refrigerator. pH sensors in the SmartBase change the LED lights on the front from green to orange as the milk quality deteriorates. The base also contains a weight sensor and can alert you by text message when you need to buy more milk.
The glass bottle holds around a litre of milk and provides the optimum storage conditions. And we think it also looks beautiful! Would you give it fridge room? Let us know via the Friends of Glass Facebook page or by tweeting us at @GlassFriendsEUR.
