Someday soon an emoji might literally save lives.
Hiroyuki Komatsu is a Google engineer. He submitted a proposal. He proposed to add a range of new icons to the standard emoji library. It could help those with food allergies. It could help them understand what they are eating anywhere in the world.
“Emoji should cover characters representing major food allergens.” That's what Komatsu wrote in his proposal. “It enables people to understand what [ingredients] are used in foods even in foreign countries and safely select meals.”
