Smell recognition coming for mobile phones

April 25th, 2006 · No Comments

Are we heading toward a new era of Smellovision? Jeong Kim, head of American research institute Bell labs, thinks we are – but not for movies. He sees smell recognition as a feature of futuristic mobile phones!
Speaking at a tech seminar in Seoul, Bell’s top boffin said he could foresee a time when mobile phones identified their owners by smell, via an ‘electronic nose’. He confided that Bell labs is working on just such a sniffology with Quantum Cascade Laser. Science fiction? Whiff-ful thinking? Probably not. To date, the organisation has registered more than 31,000 patents.
