The Gadget That Measures Your Breath Quality

Licking your wrist. Breathing into your hand. Seeing if your dog runs away from you in the morning. Whatever your preferred method for checking your breath, it's probably nowhere near as clever as the Mint.

Created by the breath-obsessed minds of Breathometer, this palm sized gadget promises to offer you a scientific breakdown of how your breath is smelling. 

Breathing into the small green body of Mint allows its sensors to measure tiny quantities of bad-smelling substances like Hydrogen Sulfide, Methyl Mercapthan and Hydrogen Disulfide - chemicals created by the bacteria (the good kind) that live in your mouth. A report on your breath quality is then delivered to your smartphone with an accompanying app, letting you know if you're in need of topping up their body's water levels (another cause of bad breath) or grabbing a mint to help cover up the bacterial aftermath of your last meal.

As well as helping you sort out your oral health, Mint also lets you engage in a bizarre social game, comparing your breath score to that of your friends on the app's leader board. 

Currently available via its Indiegogo page, you can order a Mint for around £98.50. That, or just work your way through a packet of gum every week.
