Kiss Me Meter

15 Comments

This little device will let you breathe easy when you pucker up for a romantic smooch. The petite, discreet Kiss Me Meter detects gasses in your breath and stomach and indicates whether your breath is going to delight or dismay a new lover. A green heart gives the go ahead to engage in a lusty session of tongue tango, while a broken red heart indicates it’s best to cut your losses and head for the door. Somewhere in between and you might get away with a quick squirt of minty breath freshener.

Though it’s designed to be worn as a cell phone accessory, this slightly embarrassing gadget is probably best relegated to the inner recesses of a ladies’ handbag.

1,980 yen. Available from Thanko Store Akihabara: 3-14-8 Soto Kanda, Chiyoda-ku.

A lot of Japanese people will need this devise, because many of them have very bad breath.

I can just visualize the scene. Him and her watching a romantic sunset on the beach. Him taking her hand and approaching closer. Her: Chotto matte, fumbling in her handbag, getting up,turning around and moving away a few meters to check with her KMM. Yuushsh, her turning around with a smile, him long gone....

If you eat Natto before using it, it could break the meter.

I like how it says discreet but it reands "Kiss Me" in big white letters on the front haha cool gadget though, if it works.

I swear the Japanese businessmen on the trains in Tokyo have terrible breath, and body odour that has gotten even worse over the past two decades. I wish they would start using anti perspirant...

This item should be made obligatory for the oyaji salarymen here.

They should install these on the subway. If you fail you don't ride. I hate standing next to high number of halitosis people every morning, makes me gag sometimes it's that bad.
