A group of Australian scientists are hoping to break wind, not new ground.
A team has developed an electronic capsule to monitor gas levels in the human gut.
It can be paired with a receiver or a mobile app, that will report real time conditions on the gas in your gut.
Such data could help clarify the conditions of each section of the gut and which foods may cause problems in the system.
Human trials have shown that the pill can provide new information about intestinal wind patterns and gaseous turbulence from different foods.
Hopefully it can come up with a warning system when a really smelly one is brewing.
