Believe us, it makes perfect sense. And nope, it isn’t a 16GB USB drive with a built in mp3 player. Nuh-uh. Pictured below is a dual purpose breath detector. When it’s not gauging your state of drunkenness it’s grading your breath freshness from 1 to 6.
Officially labeled the Topland Etiquette Checker, the nimble device is essentially a breathalyzer for those social occasions where you might wanna watch it on the beverage front. Aside from this function however, the Etiquette Checker has a no-holds-barred bad breath scanner. Just set the mode, go ‘Ah’ and wait for the results.
The device rates bad breath thru a six digit criteria that can e viewed beside the screen. 1 is perfect or the closest possible smell to a fragrant ideal. No surprise that the number is printed against a blue backdrop then with a laughing smiley. The worst is a dismal 6, which has a corresponding dead non-smiley face to indicate its toxic bio-hazard nature. That’s death breath, boys and girls. You either have halitosis or something just died inside your mouth. The symbolic representations of each level are indeed pretty hilarious but hey, bad breath is no joke. Gargle acid or something.
Like most cute Japanese gadgets, the Topland isn’t sold in this part of the world. But it is available in this online store for $63.
