    I had read of dogs that could smell breast cancer so this device is of great interest to me.  For a moment, I had a strange notion of travel at an airport being a combination of medical exam, with a device based on this one, and a routine security search.  I think that sort of scan would go over far better with the public and might help some people too though it would be crazy expensive.

    Xeni, I hope you are doing well with your fight too; the best to you.

  2. It’s nice someone is trying to make a machine to replace dogs.  They’ve been trying to make machines to replace humans for centuries and that’s going so swimmingly.  

    Maybe people should just sue the medical industry for failing to use proven techniques instead of reverse engineering dogs.

    He’s concealed the dog inside the box. Brilliant.

    Hospitals haven’t embraced the idea of a diagnostic tool that poops, barks and requires feeding.

    Apart from doctors, that is.

    Or we could collect our own breath sample at home and …and…and SEND IT TO THE DOGS in the mail!   info @
