Smell-O-Vision, a toaster-like device that emits a variety of odours while playing computer games for different scenarios, has been unveiled. The device has to be plugged into the television or computer on which the game is being played.
This is yet another interesting facet of games. According to sources, the users can equip the device with different aromas and programme it to function according to the situation of the game. For example, if the scenario is jungle, then one can sense the smell of pine. Similarly, if amidst sea, then one can experience the smell of water.
Smell-O-Vision, the product of ScentSciences, has been pre-loaded with 20 different smells. The device has been programmed to whiff out suitable smell at the right situation. There is also a volume control feature that controls the amount of fumes being emitted.
“Simply connect the Plug-N-Play unit to any compatible PC or gaming console for an instant experience of sight, sound and smell. Using the ScentScape digital scent delivery system, the ScentEditor is an easy to use application which provides the tools to add scent during the editing process of home videos,” ScentSciences said on its website.
