Japanese gadget turns iPhone into smell-o-phone

Why does my iPhone smell like Mick Jagger?

We already see, touch, and hear our smartphones. Isn’t it time we got a whiff of them, too? Japanese company Chaku Perfume has developed an iPhone app and accessory system that delivers smells.

The gadget part attaches to the dock of the iPhone and contains an atomizer and smell tank. A person on the other end could deliver a particular smell through the other person’s device. I’m guessing bacon would be popular.

The Chat Perf is expected to cost just over $60. Let’s imagine some uses for this. A bakery could send the smell of cinnamon rolls to entice customers in. Justin Bieber could send the smell of his Someday perfume to his devoted fans.

According to RocketNews24, a Chaku Perfume representative suggested sending a music idol’s sweat smell to the audience during a concert via Chat Perf. Delightful.
