Add a meth mouth sensor while you're at it.

Data will be collected and used in future iterations of smell-o-vision.

lol if its a tiny modification that then is almost perfect for party goers. can test whether you are ready to go. it can also help with medical testing(the lil bit it can). but stil it can be of some help.

More data for Apple to collect. Now when you are too drunk to speak, you can simply breath into your phone and it'll tell you where the nearest party/bar/liquor store is at.

a body fat sensor with a heart rate monitor would be really great for working out. combine those with GPS to measure distance over time and the accelerometer to count steps and you could have a very nice set of metrics!

I think a Body Fat sensor is a great idea, we have a ton of unhealthy weight loss where people diet, cause their body to lose muscle mass, and balloon right back up. If the difference between Fat content and pure body weight got more attention I think we would all be a bit healthier

of course, a breathalyzer add on to your smartphone would have a market in US? Are you stupid?

i doubt it can read body fat at all, that is quite impossible without a Dual Energy X-ray Absorbtiometry (DEXA).

coreym72Add a meth mouth sensor while you're at it.

That'll sell well in Las Vegas, NV.

I see this as a easyer replacement for police.

1. it's in the phone.

2. pretty sure they already have a phone thus getting rid of the weight of the old standalone Breathalyzer.

maybe Siri will now tell you to "blow" her, or call the cops when you try to drive...
