The Smell-O-Phone is Here!

Forget Smell-O-Vision, the Smell-O-Phone is here! When a female staff of Japanese company Chaku Perfume lamented that "you can't send smell through a cell phone," the company's tech guys took it as a challenge to create the Chat Perf:

... they developed a new communication service in the way of an iPhone application and device called “Chat Perf,” which can send smells across cyber space. Amazing!

Chat Perf is, surprisingly a simple gadget. All it takes is the Chat Perf attachable device, which includes an atomizer and a smell tank and fits snugly into your iPhone’s dock port. Just plug it into your iPhone and the smell can be sent to another iPhone user using the same device in a puff of spray.

Rocket News 24 has the story: Link - via PopSci. I can't wait to get one from John. He smells like rainbow and awesomeness.

It sounds like it doesn't do what I want "smellophone" to do. It doesn't transmit the smells it's exposed to, just sprays the smell you instruct it to. I can't use it to send my sister the smell of my mother's hot rolls baking while she's away from home during the holidays. I can't use it to send a friend the smell of the pool and the margaritas waiting for them to arrive. I can't use it to receive the smell of my grandmother's house while she's talking to me on the phone or share the smell of the state fair while I'm calling someone from there.
