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.
