Camera and printer maker Konica Minolta launched the KunKun (which means “sniff, sniff” in Japanese) in Tokyo Japan.
KunKun is a pocket-size smell detector that can be connected via Bluetooth to a smartphone app installed on a user’s smartphone. The app will alert the user if he or she does not smell good.
In a report published by The Guardian, the gadget can be positioned behind the ear and armpit, and if it detects high readings of sweat smells and middle-fat odors, it will alert the user by giving a message “Immediately care is needed.”
Studies showed that the number one etiquette concern in the workplace is body smell. Kunkun Body will retail for 30,000 yen (around $265).
