The 'KunKun' Detects Odor Smells You Might Not Smell Personally

Those who are aging and who might not be able to tell if they are omitting more of an odor smell than usual will find the 'KunKun' to be a great device for measuring stink. The pocket-sized 'KunKun' works by detecting ammonia, diacetyl and isovaleric acid, which are all associated with unpleasant odors. This makes it possible to know when you are omitting an odor that you personally cannot detect in order to keep you smelling more approachable.

The 'KunKun' odor smell device is the idea of Hiroshi Akiyama who wanted to create a solution for the odors that are created by older people (called kareishuu in Japanese). The device makes it possible to keep yourself smelling great by knowing when you might need to take an additional shower or apply more product.
