Soon You Might Be Able to Smell Your Favorite TV Shows and Movies

Apparently Katy Perry isn't the only one interested in smell-o-vision, as Samsung seems convinced that they might have finally figured out how to let you smell what you watch on your home television. Researchers from the University of California San Diego and the electronics giant are teaming up to create a small device that will emit thousands of odors depending on what you're watching. Smell-o-vision isn't a new concept of course; it dates back to early last century, but it's never managed to catch on. Think about how much more exciting that next rerun of Law and Order: SVU will be when you can actually smell it. [Gizmodo]
