Finding a ripe avocado is tricky. They go from being rock hard, to being ripe for a split second and before you know it, they're bad. UGH But there's an avocado scanner (the Apeel RipeFinder) that uses A.I to tell you how ripe an avocado is!! This would be so great!!
This technology could eventually find it's way into store. All you would have to do is place the avocado on the scanner and it would tell you if it's ready or would tell you (roughly) how many days until it is ready. The Apeel RipeFinder was just unveiled at the International Fresh Produce Association's Global Produce and Floral Show.
