California entrepreneur Charles Michael Yim pitched his Breathometer during Season 5 of Shark Tank. The device plugs into a Smartphone and with its app, works as a Breathalyzer. All five Sharks invested $1 million into the company. On Beyond the Tank, investor Kevin O’Leary checks in with CEO Yim.
Since Shark Tank, Breathometer has created another product, the Mint, a wireless oral health monitor that also plugs into a smartphone. Sensors in The Mint will detect bad breath (signs of bacteria, gum disease). The Mint will cost $99 -- and oral hygiene mega brand Philips will released a branded version of the Mint in the third quarter. To pre-order The Mint, register here. Beyond the Tank airs Fridays at 8pm on ABC.
