Smartphones add a sense: smell (what about a thermometer?)

If a smartphone's core competencies are the software and the touch screen, then it has to be added that there are more senses in a smartphone:
  • Sight: it has a camera.
  • Hearing: it has a microphone.
  • Touch: it has a touch screen
  • Balance and acceleration: it has a gyroscope and accelerometer.
  • Time: it has a clock.
That leaves (apart from temperature) smell. And that is now to be added through a new chip from Adamant Technologies.

One more to follow: a thermometer.
