Now, robot that tells you when you stink

Washington: Japan researchers have created a pair of robots- a girl and a dog - whose odour sensors can determine just how bad you smell.

CrazyLabo teamed up with Kitakyushu National College of Technology to build a robot that looks like a bulldog and another shaped like a woman`s head, Discovery News reported.

The dog robot sniffs your feet, generating one of four responses depending on how bad the odour.

The robot loses consciousness, if it`s particularly bad, but if your feet smell okay, the robot will nuzzle up to you.

The female head -named Kaori- which can translate as "aroma," "fragrance" or simply "smell", does something similar.

It produces an answer when you exhale onto its face, saying: "Good, like citrus," "Yuck! You have bad breath," "No way! I can`t stand it!" and "Emergency taking place!"
Both robots use a commercial odour sensor that picks up on certain chemicals in exhaled breath or emitted by feet.
