A gadget checking user’s smell released in Japan

KunKun Body, a device for checking the smell of a user’s body, was developed by Konica Minolta. Japanese consumers can buy the gadget for around 265 dollars. The company has no intention of distributing the product abroad.

KunKun Body is a small device reminding a mobile telephone with buttons. It is equipped with sensors scanning the body for chemicals causing unpleasant smell.

In order to check yourself for the smell, you need to hold the device near ears, under arms or feet – the body parts with the most intensive smell. The accumulated information will be sent to the mobile app.

Representatives of Konica Minolta are sure that a new development will be relevant in Japan. Citizens of the country don’t like foreign smell. Lots of local companies demand from their employees to carry out hygienic procedures (brush teeth, etc.) during the working day.
