This clever jug tells you when your milk has gone off


You can always depend on Quirky for clever home appliances and a recent collaboration between the cool gadget site and General Electric brings us a handy jug that keeps its owner updated about the quality and quantity of the milk inside.

It's called the Milkmaid and it works by monitoring the pH levels in milk and then sends the owner a text message if it seems to have gone bad. A light also turns red on the jug itself if it doesn't seem right and a second set of lights alerts you if levels are running a little low.

An iOS application also tells you the temperature of the milk, the amount left in the jug and the number of days left until it's spoiled.

Unfortunately, like a lot of great products on the likes of Quirky and Yanko design, the Milkmaid is still a prototype right now, so head on over to its dedicated page on Quirky to show that you're interested in it becoming a reality!
