Normally we wouldn't really cover kitchen gadgets, but Asus has just launched its PureGo PD100 in the US market and it's the company's first entry in this market space. However, it's also an "IoT" gadget, as it features Bluetooth connectivity and an app, as well as wireless charging.

At this point, you're probably wondering what the heck it is though, well, ASUS calls it a "Fruit and Vegetable Cleanliness Detector". In reality, it appears to be a sensor that detects pesticides and other "harmful" pollutants in water. In other words, you have to fill up your sink, wash your fruit or vegetables, then plop the PD100 in the water to tell you how dirty the water is. The idea is that you replace the dirty water with clean water until the device tells you that there's no more pollutants in the water. At $199.99 it's hard to see how this is going to be a big seller for ASUS, but maybe it'll be this year's gift from tech people to their loved ones.

This whole hygiene madness needs to stahp.

More hygiene beyond basics (and the definition of basic is already way beyond sense) = more allergies. Enjoy...

We're literally creating snowflakes. Humans need dirt, bacteria, and are perfectly capable of cleaning their own mess up over night. Darwin agrees.

Funny.
Many people's tap water probably has more pesticides, heavy metals, herbicides, pharmaceuticals, etc than their veggies.
The concept seems sound, but this implementation appears flawed.
Also, unless the the thing is Silver plated, you're very likely to get mold growing in all those crevasses. Even with an antimicrobial coating, tiny pieces of debris from said veggies will give sites for microbes to colonize.
Crevasses and porosity giving places for mold to grow was a major problem with many baby and toddlers bottles. Can't recall if any kids died, but it was making a lot of kids sick.

Vayra. You're correct, but this devices seems to be targeted not at microbial hygiene, but artificial-source wastes. In fact, said chemicals sometimes find their way into and onto water and food precisely because of the over concern with 'hygiene'. Ex. Phenols, fungicides, biocides, etc.

Spiral filter
28 blades with 2 mm gaps prevent the inflow of vegetable leaves, ensuring the accuracy of detection.
I guess Asus doesn't care if it makes you sick, but at least there shouldn't be any inflow of vegetable leaves...
It has also passed the Taiwan FDA food container material verification...

As long as you eat strawberries and mushrooms you'll be fine, as apparently it doesn't work on either of those...
Also:
PureGo can detect around 70% pesticide used in US in 2020.

I grew up and still live in a small-ish town, we always had our own garden where we grow our own vegetables and some fruits.
Pick it, clean with tap water and just eat it like that and we never had any issue so this 'product' makes me feel like wut.:wtf: 'I also drink tap water, its not that bad around here'

IoT means two things: the app phones home, and it won't work if not given access to location and photos, at least.

Less PC hardware to sell, so Asus is diversifying? They should make a device that will detect COVID.
