We can all agree that food poisoning is on the Mount Rushmore of bad CX. But largely it is unavoidable in certain situations. The good news: help is on the way. Researchers at UMass Amherst have developed a method for testing food via a smartphone peripheral that can identify the presence of bad bacteria in about 30 minutes. A simple test using water and a sensor that plugs into your phone will let you know if its safe to eat. You'll even be able to see the little buggers on your screen. The technology will prove extra useful in disaster areas where clean water is of utmost importance.

Sure, you'll have to wait a bit to chow down, but the wait could be worth it, especially if you're saving yourself hours in the bathroom later on.
