BUD is a proposed Internet of Things app that tells you how your fruits and veggies taste before you have to risk biting into a mushy apple or a tasteless clementine. With the supplied TasteBUD, simply poke the fruit that you are considering purchasing and let it taste for you! The app will tell you how tart, juicy and bitter your fruit will be. There is also an option to see what veggies and fruits are in season, so you can get the best deal. If you left your Taste BUD at home, there is the option to search by grocery store on the community of Taste BUDdies so you can see if another Taste BUD has already tried those perfect looking blueberries for you.
