Your iPhone Will Soon Detect Bad Breath 114

Julie188 writes "A tiny San Francisco startup, Adamant Technologies, is trying to give your iPhone a sense of smell and taste.. The company has created a computer chip that works with a bunch of tiny sensors to digitize these senses. The first app planned is a consumer device that plugs into an iPhone and detects bad breath."

    I personally have had this idea for about 10-15 years.. But i gave up the idea when Siemens created a small sensor for detecting "bad breath".. And said that one of the reasons was to implement it in a mobile phone so that it should be easy to carry around.. Think it was about 5-10 years ago.. See http://phys.org/news1194.html [phys.org] for one article about this.. Also mentioning "breath" as something interesting to analyze.. It will however have a great sale potential.. Salesmen really would like to know of their breath is ok before visiting a customer.. A young guy would love to know that he has a nice breath before kissing a girl for the first time..;-) Same for the girl of course..

Many people are unenthusiastic about their work.
