A blurb from Wired news about downloading scent. Not exactly critical news, since this type of thing has been talked about for some time, but interesting nonetheless:
A new service being tested by NTT Communications sends out smells according to data received over the internet.
Users attach a device to their laptops that resembles a crystal ball with a nozzle. The device receives aroma data from the central server and exudes fumes from the nozzle in accordance with that reading.
NTT is considering the system as a commercial product for aromatherapy, testing incense or just plain fun.
