The breath-detecting gadget gives people a quick and easy peek into their dental health

Mint, from Breathometer, is a small gadget that checks for Volatile Sulfur Compounds (VSCs) and moisture in the air we exhale. It pairs with smart devices via Bluetooth LE, and syncs data to the Breathometer app that gives users a good look at how their oral health stands.

By measuring the amount of moisture in a person’s breath, the device can tell if a person is dehydrated. This information is especially crucial to athletes, people with high-octane jobs and the elderly. If measurement is as easy as an exhale, it can be habit-forming, allowing people to track their hydration and maintain healthy levels throughout the day.
