Japanese roboticists have occasionally given us reason to wonder
if they're totally insane. After all, some recent developments in the
Land of the Rising Sun include a spankable robot butt and a coat
designed to hug lonely people and whisper sweet nothings in their
ears. Now, there is no longer any reason to wonder, as evidenced by
recent projects from the "Crazy Lab" at the Kitakyushu National College
"Kaori," which also means "fragrance." Kaori's sole function is to detect
foul breath. All you have to do is breathe in her face, and she will react
with one of four possible comments, roughly translated as "No
problem, Good sweet
and sour," "It smells a
little," "Intolerable, no
good," and "It is over,
this is an emergency
Crazy Lab also came
up with a dog version that crawls out of his doghouse to sniff people's feet.
If your toe jam is particularly fetid, he pretends to faint. Rumors that Kaori
soon will be an option on new Subarus cannot be verified. SV
Kaori the stink detecting bot,
ready to sniff your breath.
