ScentScape Scent Device activates smells during movie or game

—ScentScience’s ScentScape adds scents to your video and gaming experience.

ScentScape is a desktop-sized device that contains scent packets and can produce up to 20 different scents, such as cinnamon, ocean, flowers and so forth

It’s a desktop sized device that contains scent packets and can produce up to 20 different scents, such as cinnamon, ocean, flowers and so forth.  Currently the device’s operation is limited to ScentEditor edited videos that have been embedded with ScentScience user cues or marks that tell the box when to spray one of the many odors.

Currently, ScentScience cartridges are limited to 20 scents and cost $19.99 a pop.  However, they plan on producing custom scents for video games and perhaps other media that could be bundled with the product.  Developers can buy the SDK kit for $495, while consumers should expect to pay $69.99 for the ScentScape device.
