"Smell-o-Vision" display emits localized virtual odors
Localized dimming is a feature found in many�televisions�these days, but what about a display capable of producing localized smells? That's exactly what a team from the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology in Japan has created. The "smelling screen" that was recently presented at the IEEE Virtual Reality 2013 conference in Orlando, Florida can produce odors that appear to emanate from specific areas of the screen.
Over the years, we've seen various products that have tried to bring anolfactory dimension�to everything from�mobile phones�and�the internet, tocomputer games�and�movies. So far, none has really tickled the public's fancy - or olfactory receptors. But this hasn't stopped Haruka Matsukara and his team from producing their own take on the olfactory display system.
