Smells and tastes will be made possible for iPhones!

The above title might intrigue or baffles you in many way. It may sounds like a joke but really, it's not. According to Adamant Technologies, the company has created an innovative processor for iPhones where users are able to identify nearby smells and tastes. For example, the processor might able to let you know whether a breath has gone bad or not.

"... can take the sense of smell and taste and digitize them", Adamant founder and CEO Sam Khamis tells Business Insider. He also added that his company's product is fairly sophisticated, employing roughly about 2,000 sensors to identify smells compared with the one that ranged about 400 sensors in the average human nose!

Khamis further added that the company also planned to manufacture a device that will plug in to the iPhone and use a variety of apps, including one that will warn users when their breath is not as fresh as they would like.

"Halitosis, or bad breath tracking, is something we're really interested in," Khamis said about the app which notify users of bad breath and indicate what caused the condition. Other proposed apps are including test blood sugar for diabetics and measure blood-alcohol levels.
