SMELLIT concept makes Cheech and Chong worth watching

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on February 12th, 2009

SMELLIT concept makes Cheech and Chong worth watchingWe’ve perfected the art of excellent sound and HD movies in our Home Movie Theaters. But something is missing. A sense of smell. If you can smell it, you are there. That’s where SMELLIT comes in. Imagine watching a chef make a pizza and being able to smell every detail, like you could also taste it. You could watch some Cheech and Chong movies and get a contact high.

SMELLIT works just like your printer, but ink cartridges are replaced with smell cartridges. As your DVD or Blu-ray player reads the video and sound information, SMELLIT processes the same DVD, but the ”smell CARD” decodes the smell information from 10 to 20 seconds* ahead of the actual scene so the odors have time to hit you. After information is read, the cartridge vaporizes a very small amount of “smell gel”, and the central fan distributes the smell in all directions. It can be loaded with up to 118 cartridges, each with a different “smell gel”.

Are some Mac Pros bad apples?

Are some Mac Pros bad apples?A French newspaper, Liberation, has published claims that some Mac Pros have been releasing toxic odors. Apple is apparently investigating claims that its the desktop is full of “seven volatile organic contaminants,” like “styrene, benzene and its derivatives.” The odor apparently takes a few different forms, described as everything from “new car smell” to “cannabis”.

The culprit is believed to be the result of a resin coating on some circuit boards and disappears after a period of time. Apparently once the product has burned in. The phenomenon seems to be only in systems built before this year. Liberation cited an anonymous researcher from the French National Centre for Scientific Research, who had his Mac Pro desktop tested for toxins after he smelled some strong odors emanating from the machine.

ASUS offers four new perfumed laptops

ASUS offers four new perfumed laptopsWhile everyone else is trying to get your dollars by offering various colored laptops or laptops with art prints on them, Asus is taking it one step further by offering a dimension not of sight or sound, but smell. ASUS has a new line of fragrant laptops.

It gets better.(Or worse depending on your perspective) The fragrance will match the graphics, so that as you work the day away, you can trick your nose into thinking you are at the beach or something. It’s aimed more toward female users though, with four special edition laptops. Floral Blossom is pink and flowery, Musky Black sports graffiti art emits a…earthy musk; Morning Dew comes in pastel green and probably doesn’t emit Mountain Dew odor, while Aqua Ocean smells like the sea. Pretty strange. No price yet, but you’ll smell it coming.

Fabria Snow Gun deodorizes your home with snow

Fabria Snow Gun deodorizes with your home with snowThe Japanese are a strange and wonderfully wacky and inventive people, sometimes totally off their rocker, which we love. Their latest wacky innovation aims to replace the traditional deodorizer of choice, Febreeze, with something bizarre and awesome at the same time. It’s the Fabria Freshness Gun, which showers your home with a “soft, snow-like mist that uses the natural deodorizing qualities of astringent persimmon and grapefruit.”

According to the website, it’s all very environmentally friendly thanks to natural ingredients, but just ask yourself if you would want a blanket of Febreeze on anything in your home. It can’t be a good thing. Check out the video below, where they show off a snowman and hold grapefruit for your perusal while making it snow from a can.

Aroma USB protects you from your own BO
Aromatherapy isn’t a new concept. USB-powered diffusers have been around for awhile. But the Aroma USB makes no bones about the fact that it knows something funky is going on in your immediate area, and like a glade plug in, it wants to help.

Maybe it’s that moldy half-eaten bag of cheetos you call a mousepad. More likely it’s your own BO, mixed with a subtle hint of Hot Pockets. The device has a scented fragrance strip that doles out pleasant smelling air when the air around you gets so bad that it threatens to attract the affections of Pepe LePew. A refill will last up to about a week. The noses around you will thank you.

KissMe:Bad breath detector
Is your own breath so bad that you pass out when you exhale? Can you walk through a field of fireflys at night and watch them all dim out and die as you breath on by? The dog won’t even kiss you? Maybe you should do some tests before going out on an important date, otherwise the first date will be your last.

The Kiss Me is for you. It’s a “Personal Breath Odor Detector” that measures how bad your breath stinks. There are 5 LED lights that indicate how good or bad you stink. It can go from “kissable” to “deadly”. At $19 why wouldn’t you want to try it. The way things are right now, your breath is likely to set the smoke detector off.
