The dubious ability to send odors to your pals just became a distinct possibility thanks to the Scentee app and hardware from a company called ChatPerf. Seen in Japan, it works by letting you load a liquid refill into the device, which is then mixed and dispersed into the air at the command of an included app. Myriad uses come to mind, but the company noted a few, like sending a smell to a friend who also has the device, perking up a yoga session, helping you wake up or making a shoot ’em up video game more lively with the smell of, say, gunpowder. It’s still a prototype, but the company hopes to bring it to market with a variety of different odors, and launch it for iPhone or Android devices. Meanwhile, you can sniff it out in the video after the break.
