Bad breath can be an issue for certain people, but sometimes it can be hard to tell if your breath stinks, so these interactive robots will aid anyone whose nose cannot distinguish between minty fresh and tuna-rotting breath.

Created by Japanese robot maker CrazyLabo and people from he Kitakyushu National College of Technology, these interactive robots will smell a person's breath and determine whether it smells good or not. The two robots are a female humanoid robot named ‘Kaori’ and a dog robot called ‘Shuntaro.’ Each robot has their own specific way of determining the breath of a person. Some of Kaori's responses include "It smells like citrus!" or "Yuck! You have bad breath!" For Shuntaro it falls down and growls for bad breath and nestles up to the user when their breath smells good. Stats for Breath Smelling Robots Trending: Older & Mild
