New Internet Technology Makes Scents

November 15, 2005

THE UNITED KINGDOM: New technology may soon enable internet users in Britain to spice up their e-mails with fragrances. According to the Times newspaper, Telewest Broadband, a British internet service provider, plans to market what is being called a “scent dome,” which would plug into customers’ computers much like a printer.
Inside the device would be 20 disposable pockets of different scents, which would be combined to make up to 60 different smells. These would be released by electronic signals sent through a broadband internet connection, the report said. Telewest Broadband is currently testing the scent pods and hopes to make the technology available for about $475.
