Vorkoster is a smart lid that tracks deterioration of food in the home and helps in the reduction of waste. It incorporates a lid that visualises the deterioration of food via a PH-sensitive film in
the middle which reacts to the spoilage of protein-containing foods with a colour change. Taster intents to offer an alternative to the standardised expiry date and to provide assistance for an
unpackaged future. The lid is a 3D printed object, the PH film is made from algae and works with a self-made natural indicator dye.
