I got back from my run last night, and i could actually smell myself... I was THAT sweaty and nasty.
Body odor is a very serious issue, so serious in fact that there is actually a market for high-tech devices that alert users if they start to stink. Thankfully, Japanese wellness device maker Tanita just unveiled its newest creation, a handheld smell checker that analyzes body odor and ranks its intensity on a scale of 1 to 10. Called the ES-100, Tanita’s smell-sensing device was inspired by the company’s range of alcohol breath analyzers. They basically adapted their technology to check for odor-producing particulate matter instead of alcohol and the ES-100 was born. Interestingly, the Tanita ES-100 doesn’t work just for naturally occurring body odor, but also for cologne. So if you feel that too much cologne is just as bad as the musky smell of perspiration, you can use the handheld device to check if you’ve overdone it with the perfume.
