I was just telling someone the other day that I wished you could take a picture of a smell. The acacias are blooming and it would nice to have that scent to pull out in winter when everything is gray...

Have an open mind! I remember saying "Why would anyone need speakers for a PC?"

COULD BE DANGEROUS TOO!
Imagine the problems if it automatically sends the scent of where you are....
msg sent: "Stuck at work, home in a couple of hours"
Scent sent: "beer & smoke at the local pub" - or worse still - "another womans perfume"

It would be nice to get the scent of one you love, if they were over seas or a long distance away.
