BBC Focus Magazine Predicts Arrival of Fresh Pod a Decade Late
Published: 22 Jun 2011
BBC Focus Magazine has predicted the arrival of Fresh Pod for the year 2020.
The science magazine features a predicted day in the life of the average person in nine years from now. As part of the day the magazine predicts that man will be able to keep fresh produce fresh for longer by placing it in a bag containing a natural compound that "inhibits the ethylene - the naturally produced gas that encourages fruit to ripen" - exactly as Fresh Pod currently does.
The BBC Focus team, having clearly not yet heard of the revolutionary green wonder, call their 'fictional' product "FrootStore". Rest assured however we will contact them to pass on the good news.
The future is here. The future is Fresh Pod.
