Besides helping you wade through everything that’s out there on the Internet, soon, Google might help you smell better after an intense cardio sesh. Just a week ago, their “fragrance emission device” patent was approved. Blueprints revealed a wearable that can detect when you’re out for your daily run or when you’re helping a friend move their heavy boxes into a new apartment. More specifically, it detects your sweat levels, increased body odor and body temperature so that it can spritz out a deodorizer… we’ll just let that sink in for a second…


We’re not totally against Google getting in on our personal hygiene game, and here’s why: We don’t know about you guys, but it always feels like we’re running into that cutie at work right after we’ve been waiting out in the blaring sun for half an hour in that lunchtime taco-truck line. In this scenario, Google’s stinkin’ wearable would quickly become our best friend. Linking up to Nearby Friends via Facebook, Google’s wearable would be able to notify you if any of your friends were around. It would also be able to suggest a different route back to your desk… because apparently Google doesn’t think that sweat is an acceptable bodily function. If you don’t like getting all perfume-y, the patent showed an option to turn off the fragrance spritzer.


Now all we’re wondering is if these wearables come with a bottle of Dolce Gabbana Light Blue
