Pass gas more than 13 times per day? That could be a problem, and one entrepreneur says he has the solution. CH4 is a fart-o-meter (yes, you read that right) worn like a pedometer in your back pocket or belt loop. It claims to keep tally when you break wind, and correlates the results with dietary choicesâ€”logged in an accompanying mobile app.
The creator, Rodrigo Narciso, said he created the campaign to gauge how much interest there is in the device, originally a master's degree project at New York University. Based on what he's seen, Narciso plans to try again if he doesn't get funded this round.
The campaign, which closes in May, raised $1,258 toward the $180,000 goal as of April 29. It only costs a cool $120 to get your own CH4 and live the gas-free lifestyle.
