The E-nose probably won't be nose-shaped as illustrated in this article, but it will be ubiquitous. Noses are useful for a wide varoety of things - testing for bad meat, detecting smoke, identfying perfume, and tracking down bacon. The e-nose described here is made from carbon nanotibes; these are used because they bring memory and processing closer together. "As applications like machine learning become more widespread, computing’s data intensity is only growing." Related, from 2008: Electronic noses sniff success.
