In Japan, created a robo-dog, which will determine how stinky you have socks
The idea of developing such a “pet” did not spontaneously arise. In Japan, many people devote their time to work and forget a little about personal hygiene. At the same time, when you go into a private room, it is customary to take off your shoes. One senior manager complained that his friend all the time reproaches the unpleasant smell of his feet, and he was so earned that he did not feel anything. Could engineers create a stinker sensor to give a clear and precise answer - to waste time changing socks or not?
It may seem ridiculous, but for Japan it is in the order of things - they are used to relying on all sorts of gadgets that make life easier.Plus a slight insanity, so inherent in Japanese know-how. The sensors were created and set up quickly, and in order for the “sniffing” process to look natural, they were mounted on the basis of a toy animatronic dog. It is only necessary to bring to it the object, the purity of the smell of which you doubt - if everything is normal, the dog wags its tail, with a slight stench growls irritably, and if it cuts eyes straight, it imitates falling into a swoon. How can you not understand?
The developers say that in this way they are solving an ethical problem - you can put a “Cerberus” to meet guests at the door and subtly hint at the dirty ones that they saw through.
