We can now smell our notifications with Scentee
Let’s take a look at Scentee- the very first scent accessory for smart phones. Something we have never experienced before that can actually add the dementions of scent to our communications. It can spray an aroma of your choosing every time you get notifications, social network alerts or even alarms.
It’s simply to attach to the earphone jack and voilà; the smartphone will spray the aroma. Because, let’s face it. Ringtones and LED lights are so last Tuesday. If we really want to smell our notifications or not, it doesn’t matter, because the Japanese-made accessory is here and, let’s be honest, something tickles you to check it out. And the possibilities are many- apps including scented notifications for emails and Facebook ‘likes’. It also features a timer system that releases the smell you choose as often as you like, for example every hour it will release a sweet strawberry aroma.
And all of this comes in different floral like lavender or jasmine, or even fruity. I’m not kidding, there’s even the scent of curry, bacon, corn soup and the catalogue of Scentee keeps on growing. Just keep in mind that the capsules that keep the different aromas can be used approximately 100 times and run for USD 5.
Scentee works for both iOS and Android with a custom app that will help you set options to your notifications and chose which ones will determine which smell. After that, using an ultrasonic wave to trigger a reaction in the chip, it will spray the aroma once you receive a notification.
In case you are interested in Scentee and you want to try something innovative and cool, even though not as useful as it’s flashy, you can buy the device in Amazon after November 15 for approximately USD 35.
