Biometric Nose

NoseSouth Korea has been blowing the world away with their appetite for plastic surgery and cosmetic personal care goods.  Perhaps it is no surprise, then, that scientists in South Korea have invented a “biometric nose.”  Quite literally a nose that can smell and deifer fragrance of any sort, naturally derived and lab designed, with a human description of the scent.  Ultimately this sort of discovery will grace technology that drives consumer spending; however, the R and D team behind the nose’s development hope it will serve human kind in other ways as well.  For instance, bad smells instinctively register for people and many animals as an item not to be eaten.  A bad smell often indicates that something is spoiled or poisonous.
