Japanese company CrazyLabo has teamed up with Kitakyushu National College of Technology to create two robots: one that resembles a bulldog and another shaped like the head of a semi-attractive woman.

The purpose of these robots is to tell you whether or not your feet or breath smell bad.

The bulldog sniffs your feet and gives one of four responses depending on the odor. If it’s particularly bad, the robot appears to lose consciousness. If your feet smell alright, it will nuzzle up to you like an adoring animal.

To judge your breath, exhale onto the woman’s face and she will offer one of many phrases, including “Good, like citrus” to “Yuck! You have bad breath” to “Emergency!”

Both robots use a commercial odor sensor that detects certain chemicals emitted by breath or feet.

We don’t know if these robots are on sale yet or how much they would go for, but their creation seems to suggest that Japanese men are be born with some sort of sensory deficiency that prevents them from being able to smell their own breath or feet.
