Olf-Action’s Smellit device is nothing to be sniffed at. Well, technically it is, but that’s not the point. This odiferous gizmo offers yet another level of immersion in movies and games by wafting out pre-calculated scents in to your surroundings, courtesy of removable smell cartridges.
Feast your eyes on the list of example scents above. Having skimmed the list ourselves, we can’t say that we’re looking forward to our living rooms smelling like horses, dentists or polluted cities, but we wouldn’t say no to a nice cake aroma.
By the way, if you're wondering whether the device will work with your extensive porn collection (tsk, tsk), 'smell number 20001' would seem to answer your dubious question.
This zany device will be on display at the Lisbon design show in Portugal this week. Seeing as how Olf-Action already makes Odoravision systems for cinemas, it’s likely that the smells of cut grass and burning gasoline will be wafting out of our home theatre systems in the not-so-distant future.
