Imagine a system of sensors working together to eliminate waste at all food production sites. Those same sensors could send signals to change the growing environment to create the perfect tasting produce for any occasion. At the same time, a network of sensors could allow food to be redistributed where it is wanted and needed most. That is the internet of food that Caleb Harper talks about.

I just rewatched his Ted Talk and it reminded me of a conversation I had a bit ago with Brian Falther of Future Tech Farm. If you haven’t seen it already check out the Ted Talk below and let me know what else an internet of food could do.
