“If you could test your food for unwanted ingredients in two minutes or less, wouldn’t you?” That’s what the folks behind Nima, a portable sensor that tests food for gluten in two minutes or less, are asking. For those of us who suffer from various food allergies, Nima comes as a blessing.

How does it work? First, load the pod by inserting a food sample to a Nima test pod, then screw the cap closed. Next, turn the Nima on and push the test pod into the gadget until you heard a click. Then, simply wait for the results. According to its website, here a Nima’s key features:
