Smellyvision

One of my readers is making a serious effort to change the world. And it looks like his machine may be smelling rotten food for less than a dollar per rotting piece. For those of you who are already in the market for a smell-o-phone, check out the Economist article from this week, What the nose knows.

Thanks to Nee-Nee for pointing me to this article.

great! the world will change surely.
next thing: smello-e-mail???
smello-chat on yahoo ???
one curiosity: will the smello-phone
have a "smell mail box" (like voice mail box) and what will be the message
on that: please leave ur smell after
the bip ???
even basic question: may be one puts
the receiver near nose instead of ears
but how will the mic get oriented ?

I don't know about you, but I like to use the telephone just so I don't have to smell the person at the other end. I spend enough of my time inadvertently detecting malodorously-scented human beings. Think how smart my olefactory senses would be if they could focus more on important smells. Maybe I could detect truffles! Or smuggled drugs! I could be rich!!!
