Smell-O-Vision: One Step Closer To Reality
Mmmm, love the smell of Kratos in the morning. Smells like...ashes :/
You ever wanted to smell whatever you're watching in a movie? Cheap perfume, sweat and shame. Get it? Because you're watching p0rno. Me? I'm watching cartoons, which are actually like p0rno to some people because, I dunno, they weren't allowed to watch Saturday morning cartoons growing up or something. DO I LOOK LIKE A PSYCHOLOGIST TO YOU?! "Not with that crash helmet on, no." Exactly, I'm clearly a stuntman. This is SMELLIT, a system that mixes and disperses fragrances to coincide with a movie.
The SMELLIT (yes, that is seriously it's name) is a new gadget from French company Olf-action (as in "olefaction", get it?) and it's designed to add "the smell dimension" to various forms of digital entertainment. And given the face that Olf-action already makes a smell-syncronization system for movie theaters called Odoravision, there's a good chance this is going to be made into an actual product you can buy someday.
Admittedly, I would feel a little more comfortable breaking wind in the theater if there was a SMELLIT system in place. Because right now all I can do is cover the noise by laughing and talking really loud. AHAHHAHAHAH *brap* THE NOTEBOOK -- GOD I LOVE THIS MOVIE.
Hit the jump for a couple more shots, including some of the smells the thing can make (like naked bodies and the dentist!)

Thanks Martin, who can't mix smells but CAN mix potions, which, as far as I'm concerned, makes him infinitely more useful to a powerful wizard like myself. "You just said you were a stuntman." I AM A JACKASS OF ALL TRADES.
