Scent Sciences Corporation announces a device called ScentScape, which will bring the sense of smell into PC gaming (besides the already not-uncommon smells of B.O. and Cheetos) when it is released in the fourth quarter of this year, according to MCV. They say the USB device contains 20 scent wells, which games will trigger to let off a required scent such as pine forest, ocean, and smoke. Word is PC development kits are shipping this month and future support for consoles is planned.

the fact that its called Smell O Vision means these people are morons.
Wouldn't it be called TeleSmell? vision and smell are different scences duuuuuuuurr
even still the idea is stupid, and if it even takes off i'll eat my hat.

if it was direct neural smell simulation that would work - like virtual reality.. but hey thats like 100 years away.

As the article notes, the device is called the "ScentScape." Smell-O-Vision was my joke. Though I was tempted to go with Professor Farnsworth's Smelloscope.
