You can't trust anyone to tell you if your breath stinks or not, so the invention of this bad breath detector is incredibly beneficial. Small enough to fit in your palm, the Breathometer Mint can be blown into like a whistle, taking 12 seconds or less to analyze your sample. It was revealed at CES 2015.

Working in conjunction with the Breathometer smartphone app, the little device runs instant tests for the various factors that frequently contribute to fowl smells. Certain levels of hydrogen disulfide, hydrogen sulfide, methyl mercaptan will produce a positive result for bad breath, as will the discovery that you're dehydrated. A full breakdown of your breath will be delivered to your mobile phone, potentially recommending that you drink some water or pop a mint in your mouth.
