I’ve been in touch with a crackerjack crew of whiz kids at MIT and CalTech and am pleased to present one of the world’s first scratch and sniff posts! They really struggled with the videos. You can imagine how the constantly shifting images would be a challenge. It’s passable for now but I think the potential for improvement is there.
Alright, that smelled a lot like Aqua Net hairspray. (As a side note: I learned how to do pap smears in school and, at the time, we used Aqua Net as a fixative. They’ve relegated that to the dustbin of history now). I also learned that the album this was on was April Wine’s 9th studio release. And they were Canadian. That explains a lot.
Alright, moving on to the scratch and sniff gallery:
“Summer breeze, makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind.”…oh yeah, where were we? That’s right. Fine smells.
Nothing better than that new puppy smell! Who’s a good boy?
Let’s see…how about some tasty dishes?
This is a bizarre combination called the sausage taco. So crazy it just might work!
There really is no limit to this scratch and sniff technology. It’s exciting to thing that scientists have made the digital leap to make dancing electrons stimulate our olfactory nerve receptors in such a way our brains believe we smell something which is not actually there. The progress they’ve made since Hustler Magazine (nsfw for a few stray pubes…it was the 70’s) tried this in 1977 is just amazing. Truly fascinating.
