Suffering from body odour? Use this odour-sensing 'armpit fan' by Google


London, Dec 15: Tech giant Google has been awarded a patent for a body odour busting device which releases fragrances to keep the user smelling fresh.

The wearable 'fragrance emission device' includes several sensors that can detect the physical activity of the user. These sensors would also detect a rise in temperature and moisture, suggesting increased sweat levels and body odour.

The device fits under the clothes and uses its range of sensors to keep tabs on odour levels. When needed, it releases fragrances to keep the user smelling fresh. It is also able to regulate just how much spray is needed to cover the user's body odour needs, 'express.co.uk' reported.

The device will also provide travel tips which can suggest routes away from people within the user's social network of contacts that are linked to the device, in case of those bad-smelling situations.

The route suggesting portion may employ searching technology such as Google Maps or Google Earth to supply the alternate route.
