Doesn't it seem like being able to smell a TV show would be undesirable a lot of the time? Alex Trebek's cologne would be wafting around your grandma's all through Easter dinner and then your house would smell like blood after the Game of Thrones premier.
But you gotta give the people what they want, right? And somebody has been wanting to smell the screen since the early 1900s. So Japanese researchers at the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology have been working on it, and debuted their "smelling screen" at the IEEE Virtual Reality conference in Orlando.
