【一个有味道的发明:手持式“臭味扫描仪”】据报道,最近某日本公司开发出了一种能够警告使用者体味的传感器,该设备有一个可折叠的“手臂”,使用与呼吸测醉器相似的技术,其通过传感器来检测从高浓度汗腺(例如腋下)身体部位渗出的化合物,需要10秒钟,即可对体臭进行评分,根据1至10分的评分,警告用户促使解决。该装置通过测量气味强度评分,用户可用于检测是否有狐臭,是否使用过多的香水等。

Feeling fresh? Handheld 'stink scanner' can tell you if you have body odor in just ten seconds

  • A Japanese company has developed a sensor that can warn users of body odor
  • It uses technology similar to breathalyzers and detects chemical compound responsible for smell from parts of the body with high numbers of sweat glands
  • The ES-100 takes 10 seconds to rate body odor on a scale of one to 10

Summer brings warm weather and longer days - and often the unmistakable stink of body odor.

However,  a Japanese company has developed a sensor that can warn its users if they smell badly.

Tanita's ES-100 uses similar sensors to breathalyzers to detect the chemical compounds that exude from parts of the body with high concentrations of sweat glands, such as armpits.

The device has a fold-out 'arm' that the user holds near a suspected 'offensive' area. It takes 10 seconds for the gadget to sense a smell.

To use it, owners simply turn it on and hold out the sensor.

It then provides a rating from one to 10.

One means there is nothing to worry about, and 10 means it's definitely time to reapply deodorant.

The device can also be used to measure if a user has gone too heavy on the cologne, because it measures the intensity of aroma rather than a specific smell.

The company expects to sell the gadget mostly to men in their 40s and 50s, an age group where men apparently start becoming particularly concerned with body odor, according to SoraNews24.

Tanita claims the device is small enough to be carried in a pocket, and can easily be used before important events like a business meeting or a date.

The ES-100 is available for purchase on July 1.

A price currently isn't listed, but the company's other gadgets usually cost between $30 to $40.

The company has been selling its 'breath checkers' and 'alcohol checkers' since 1999. They have sold more than 2.5 million units.

However, past research has found that bad body odor is commonly associated with vulnerability, which triggers feelings of concern in others, meaning people could even be nicer to you.

Lead author Jeroen Camps and colleagues, from the university KU Leuven in Belgium, said: 'Scents are omnipresent in our daily world and they are of great importance as represented by the use of perfumes or fragrances in the work environment.'

This means people tend to increase their level of co-operation when dealing with someone who smells bad because they feel sorry for them.

'Even though it has been argued that bad scents invoke negative judgments, we argued and demonstrated that a bad body odor elicits feelings of pity in others and increases prosocial behavior.'
