Now smell on web

Google Nose rolled out a beta release today, that lets you smell from your laptop or desktop computer screen. It is a good hack of computer screens and speakers. The combination of static electricity on the monitor screen and an electricity of a partial electromagnet creates unique photons that when combined with the infra rays, this ElectrochemilumineSCENT aroma stuff happens that produces odor. By changing the electricity, different odors are produced. This is one step ahead in what IBM predicted that computers in 5 years can taste, smell and hear like we humans do. We all are familiar with the electric odor but who would have thought when its coming from monitor screens and speakers can do this magic? Google Nose does and has captured over 15 million scentabytes of aroma data, here you can smell some of these, just type these keywords on Google,
