This startup wants to give your iPhone a sense of smell1/7/2013
A tiny San Francisco startup is trying to give your iPhone a sense of smell. Adamant Technologies has created a chip that uses tiny sensors to "take the sense of smell and taste and digitize them," explains Sam Khamis, the company’s founder. The human nose has about 400 biological sensors that detect olfactory chemicals in the air and identify them. Adamant's chip has 2,000, which is closer in smelling power to a dog's nose, according to Khamis. The company has just gone into production with the chip, and anticipates selling iPhone-specific apps and hardware within two years. Then you can inform your spouse they have halitosis without embarrassment. [Source]
