New German Mobile Phone to Detect Bad Breath
Hmm, I know a few people who coul duse this technology today here in the U.S. Interesting concept...now all they need to do is be able to store mouthwash in the phone that squirts into your mouth when the offensive breath is detected!
The phone will use a tiny chip measuring less than one millimeter to detect unpleasant odors, a spokeswoman for Siemens Mobile said. A research team in the southern city of Munich is developing the device using new sensor technology.
"It examines the air in the immediate vicinity for anything from bad breath and alcohol to atmospheric gas levels," the spokeswoman said. "Some people take smelling good rather seriously."
