• The machine can distinguish between two smells that are technically mirror images of each other, also known as chiral molecules. Prior to this development, previously invented machines were not able to match this feat.
  • ell, these machines may be able to detect certain scents that are undesirable under certain laws, like marijuana in the proximity in a place that’s outlawed its use. Furthermore, it may have uses in food production factories to tell if the products are spoiled prior to shipping.
  • While incredibly sensitive, it looks like the research is there to be expanded on and refined for future projects. The machine may not be able to smell in the practical, human-associated definition, but it functions and processes the information better than we can.
