Tech company Vapor Communications says it has launched onotes.com

June 2, 2014

Tech company Vapor Communications says it has launched onotes.com, a platform for scent messaging aimed to permit consumers to combine aromatic content with text, image, and audio content in mobile messaging, online retail, entertainment, and other electronic communication. Over the next year, this new communication platform will evolve to allow users to send and receive scent-infused messages and ultimately transform the way we communicate.

The platform is built for the oPhone, the company’s proprietary technology-designed device to generate complex aroma signals in rapid succession without lingering aromatic clouds, similar to the function of a standard telephone in its delivery of audio information.

Starting June 17, oSnap, the company’s iPhone application, will allow users to tag photographs with more than 300,000 unique scents, send and receive these scent-tagged images electronically as oNotes via email, Facebook, Twitter and other.  Paired by Bluetooth with the oPhone, iPhone users of oSnap will be able to aromatically experience oNotes.

The firm planned to demonstrate the first commercial oPhone from June 19 to July 31 in Paris, and from June 17-July 31, Vapor will pre-sale (on Indiegogo) the first commercial oPhone, which will be delivered in early 2015 for a retail price of $149.
