Nidorlux Transducer

An odor to light sensor and emitter.
  [vote for,

First in a series of unrealized transducers. This particular sensor will monitor the environment for foul odors and emit a bright light upon detection. I submit that if placed discretely near or on a potentially offending individual the benefits of this device as a flatulence detector are obvious, maybe even profound.

       Can it be controlled to still point at the dog?

       The generation II version (computer controlled) will be able to descriminate between animal species.

       See, that's totally not the answer I wanted...

       How would you quantify 'foul'?

       How do you place this discretely on an individual?

       angel - I would calibrate using shapu's dog

       "Professor Bingalls!, we put the dog in the sealed chamber and we are not detecting any foul odor at all! Oh wait! There is something, No, that's no good, [shapu] opened the chamber to pet the dog."
