Well NIOSH, EPA and NASA was developing miniature technology in the 1970's!
See report at the link below.

The instrument was profiled in Scientific American during this period.

Developing miniature intelligent detectors has been a decades old goal.

If you're interested in this sort of thing, check out Nate Lewis at Caltech.
He makes electronic noses (and I believe he actually was the first to do
so).  He showed a video at a talk one time that showed robots with these
noses that were able to respond to "smells".

Hi Everyone!

Sensors and biosensors have been a personal interest of mine for a
long time.  Their application to defense is obvious, however it is not
hard to see the expanded roles they will play in EHS.  That being
said, I found this article on CNN, it doesn't say much as far as
scientific knowledge (almost laughable actually) but I thought that
many of you would take interest in this type of research considering
how it can be applied.

I don't know much about this specific sensor, but if anyone is
interested in opening a discussion, you can consider me an informed
enthusiast willing to share what I know.
