Scents that are Sent by Phone

13.02.2014
Just in Time for Valentine's Day

Prototype of the oPhone that can send a scent to someone far away.

What if you forgot about Valentine’s Day, and now it’s too late to send that certain someone roses. Someday, you’ll at least be able to send their scent.

A Paris laboratory under the direction of David Edwards, Michigan Technological University alumnus, has created the oPhone, which will allow odors—oNotes—to be sent, via Bluetooth and smartphone attachments, to oPhones across the state, country or ocean, where the recipient can enjoy American Beauties or any other variety of rose.

The scents can be sent via email, tweet, or text.

The secret is in accurate scent reproduction, locked in chips plugged into the devices. Odors are captured in wax after they are perfected using “The Nose”-- an aroma expert at Le Lab in Paris, Marlène Staiger -- who deconstructs the scents.

"Imagine you are online and want to know what a particular brand of coffee would smell like,” Edwards says. “Or, you are in an actual long line waiting to order. You just tap on the oNote and get the experience.”
