Looks as though Siemens will be selling their next phones with mints

A German telecommunications company says it is developing the first mobile phone that will alert users when their breath is bad or if they are giving off offensive smells. The phone will use a tiny chip measuring less than one millimetre to detect unpleasant odours, a spokeswoman for Siemens Mobile said on Tuesday. A research team in the southern city of Munich is developing the device using new sensor technology.

hmmm, I'm not sure my phone would ever quit alerting me, I could see myself getting pissed and throwing it away... "waddya mean I stink?"

:) Suspect I'd do the same - it's embarrassing enough having them go ring in the theatre, but having them say "Warning: breath alert" might just be too much.
