For those who never believed the extent of smartphone capabilities, Adamant Technologies, a company based in San Francisco, is working on an attachment that will allow people to test their breath in order to detect bad breath and, on a more serious level, disease. While health and fitness has seen huge steps in regards to personal and portable devices, Adamant Technologies ushers in a whole new set of possibilities.

Backed by venture capitalist Vinod Khosla, Adamant Technologies is currently developing an attachment that mimics the human sensory system. Equipped with 2,000 sensors, it will be able to identify an exhaustive list of odors. By digitizing the senses of smell and taste, Adamant Technologies' device will also be able to alert people to soured food while also acting as a medical breathalyzer.
