Halitosis Detector Tells You If You Have Bad Breath

Halitosis Detector: Love It or Leave It?

Don't rely on brutally honest little kids and loved ones to tell you when you have bad breath — let technology do it for you!

I have no idea how this Halitosis Detector works, but it's definitely appealing to my deepest insecurities. For just $11 (on sale from $25!), this little gizmo somehow measures your breath in four different stages of stinkiness.

I'm guessing the horrified icon screaming, "Wait!" on display is the worst. What do you say, use the covert breathing-into-your-hand trick, or would you trust this gadget to have your back?

I'm kinda paranoid about mine too, canary. I wouldn't mind having it, but I wouldn't rush out to buy one. Then again, who would? D: How embarrassing would it be to go into a shop and purchase that?

do you really want to give people the ability to run up to you to see how bad your breath is? i can just see this going way wrong in high schools or middle schools!

I think that you guys are pretty trusting to think that this thing works! Most gadgets that I have bought in the past didn't really work, or work well, and I wasted my money. Unless I had a demonstration and understood that (and how) it worked, I'd stay away! But like everyone else, I'd love to have one if it worked.

Normally, I can tell if I have bad breath. "WAIT! :O"

I am totally paranoid about my breath (don't know why)I would love this especially at work! Luckily my kids, when asked, are brutally honest - they are handy that way!

It is a nice little nifty gadget to have. But seriously speaking I doubt it would make a worthwhile buy.

I know some co-workers who should be using this on themselves.

I think this is great. I once had a friend with terrible breath and I just couldn't work out a way to tell her. If only she had one of those. Can they also make a BO version of this?
