Technology is taking over our lives. It wakes us up, entertains us, moves us, organises us, and even reminds us to run. Earlier this month, however, Google was awarded a new patent that could potentially allow them to use technology to control how we smell.
On February 10, Google patented a movement-tracker that would be connected to the web, and act to detect any offending smells by de-odorising them through a squirt of fragrance. Google has also suggested that the technology could be used to locate smelly friends in an attempt to help you avoid them.
What do you think? Would you wear this device? Is technology taking one step too far?
