Your Apple iPhone will soon be able to smell and taste

A new processor designed by Adamant Technologies will allow an Apple iPhone to digitize smells and tastes and will have 2,000 sensors compared with 400 in the average human nose; the company plans to design future chips that will tell an iPhone user when he has bad breath or when his blood sugar is high...

Iphone users need such sensitive sensors, because they don't even feel how much they are screwed by Apple:)

I think you're wrong, they do feel it. They're just used to so much pounding that they've been desensitized to getting screwed; pretty much like the average promiscuous slutty Apple user.

I'm all for innovation, but what is the point of this? How about we focus on innovating things that actually have a use in the real world?

Well, if this can be used for detecting carbon dioxide and tell level warnings with those 2,000 senors. I think it could be pretty beneficial.

I think they already have a bluetooth connecting thing that has a lot of different attachable heads, one of which is a carbon monoxide detector, it seems more sensible to put that in a potentially lethal room compared to your phone, I think

This is important because it will be able to distinguish a bad Apple; and, will all those bad Apple s out there, it's sure to get rotten to the core.

I completely agree, think of all the dates you can get when you pull out your iPhone at a soirée with the opposite sex (assuming you're into the opposite sex), and you tell chicks you can smell their green Earth.

My question is how does the iPhone become so aware? Is Adamant going to supply their bits to Apple to incorporate into the next iPhone? An add-on device that plugs into the iPhone? Or?
Further, is Adamant going to be iPhone bigoted? If so, that strikes me as rather short-sighted, and outright dumb. No wonder they only raised $2.5 million.

Alan - the VC's first name is Vinod. Could you update your article to reflect that? Mis-spelling someone's name in some cultures is bordering on being obscene. At a minimum, it is disrespectful. You probably wouldn't want your name spelled Alainis, would you?

Lol it reminds me how people used to play with the name Alarm switching L and N....

Well it could be worse than 'Alainis'; someone with dyslexia might inadvertently type Ånal for Alan.

" Other apps, priced at $100 or less, will allow diabetics to test their blood sugar level and allow those drinking to get a up-to-date reading on blood-alcohol levels."
This is going to be pretty helpful, I hope it could become available for android too.

OK sorry I had to let out this one:
Finally the possibilities of telling who farted in the office! No more letting careless gas go out without though for the rest! Thou shall be notified!
And best of all the android version with the help of Google now will place the contact card for those who farted

I see only comments bashing iPhones, Apple, blah blah.. Why can't you guys be amazed of this feature? Or at least the tech? Give it a 'wow'! So what if it's from Apple? Maybe there will be some health practical use. It might not be for you all-healthy people, but think about those who have problems and has to check themselves every hours. This might be helpful.. Well, before jumping into any more conclusion, let's just wait for the final product and see.

PLEASE tell me how being able to digitally "smell" something has ANY practical use in the real world. I'll give you the blood testing, that's pretty useful but come onnnnn

Well all I can say is that I don't need 2000 sensors or a special processor on an iPhone for this new must-have feature, all I have to do is pull my iPhone out da' toilet and iSmellz it.

I can already see the lawsuits lining up. An app that tells you your blood alcohol level. A certain group handed out breathalizers on a college campus in an attempt at harm reduction,from the thought that the students could check their blood alcohol levels so they wouldn't hit harmful levels also so they wouldn't get dui's. The same weekend they handed them out there were 3 deaths and multiple hospitalizations. Reason being... The students were competing to see who could achieve the highest blood alcohol level before passing out.
I called this that it would happen As soon as they mentioned handing them out on the news and sure enough that weekend it did. This app will only do the same, considering how popular iphone's are amongst adolescents. Remember this post.

Glad to see that Adam Ant is back making headlines. I have not heard about him since he released that single "Goody Two Shoes" quite a while ago.
I also do not need an app to tell me my breath is bad - people tell me that everyday.

This will be good for shopping perfumes and spices online when it's not available where you are.
Also, your phone will now be able to tell you to take a shower when u stink! Lol

I don't think we need olfactory sensors to smell out AppleHater crap on this forum. Common guys, if it wasn't for Apple you will still have flip phones and c: prompts.
Keep it civil.....

Though this may be useful to a group of people and I commend them for their design, but as long as I have my own sense of taste and smell, this is useless to me... This is just another reason for Apple to put an even much higher price tag to an already way overpriced device... NO THANKS! Although, i$heeps of the world are already salivating on the idea...
