    Cell Phones Sniff out Rotten Scents

    Can you imagine a mobil that warn you when you have bad breath...

    Sensors in the next generation of cell phones will be able to warn owners of fires and ozone levels, but it may be a bad breath alert that makes the most people open their wallets for the extra feature.
    Siemens has developed technology that recognizes smells, including bad breath, the company announced Monday.
    well Imagine the miniature sensors. That's totally new 4 me.To me the fact that the mobiles can handle internet was so surprising...
    Have I crossed the line?

    That's no fun.

    Now what would be good would be the ability to transmit that odour to the person at the other end of the phone.
    SMS would be the Smell Message Service
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
