Record and play smells

13 08 2006

It was in one of those Sunday day dreams that I wondered that now that we can record and play sounds and visuals through video, how come we dont have smell recorders yet? Curious and almost sure that such a thing doesn’t exist yet, I looked it up  and voila – the Japanese seem to have created one already! Quite cool haan, we should be able to do hell lot of more exciting stuff on the internet now.

There is this recurring slightly weird thought I have, about a situation. What if I woke up one day, realizing I am 50 years back in history. And that no one else except me knows of the recent inventions that we use so often, like the internet, the Ipod, mobile phones etc. So I imagine myself convincing those people in history about the world that I have seen. And then I wonder that if asked to, will I be able to reproduce any single invention??

I’ve oftened wondered when smell will be added to the movies and televsion. The benefit to commericials alone would be immense (think of a comercial for chocolate chip cookies).

We could then really enjoy our Smellevisions and home theaters with 7.1 surround smell 😉
