Saks Fifth Avenue has revealed its plans for what stores may look like post-pandemic, which includes associates wearing fashionable masks and passing out small bottles of hand sanitizer. This reason is to try and make customers feel safe and use as much caution as possible, like using disposable cosmetic samples and contactless credit-card readers. “We don’t want anything medical or scary looking,” Saks President Marc Metrick said of the masks in the New York Post article linked above. “Masks could become the new iPhone cases.

Ford files a Patent Application to Help Sniff Out Stinky Ride-Hailing Cars
Ford has filed a patent that will help people using ride-hailing services to know whether the vehicle they pick smells bad. This patent shows that the system would use an environmental sensor to determine the odors inside the said vehicle and compare them and their concentrations to a list of thresholds set by the customer. This might mean that if you hate a particular type of air freshener, the system might be able to tell if the car has that smell and find a different vehicle.
