Sending Smells Through Your Smartphone?

Is it possible that I’ll be able to have you be able to smell my via your smartphone? An app called Scentee and hardware from a company called ChatPerf is on it. 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. The company noted some possible uses, 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 “interactive” with the odor of, say, gunpowder. It’s still a prototype, but the company hopes to bring it to market with a variety of different scents, and launch it for iPhone or Android devices.

What do you think of potential smell-o-vision smartphones?
