What's the best way to reduce your consumption of calories while still being able to savour your favorite foods? Why, by smelling them, of course, using the 'Hana Yakiniku.' The 'Hana Yakiniku,' which literally translates in Japanese to 'nose grilled meat,' is a 17g kit designed by Scentee as a way to reproduce the olfactory scents of such mouthwatering food items such as short ribs, beef tongue and buttered potatoes.

The 'Hana Yakiniku,' which looks like a webcam, is attached to the headphone jack of a smartphone. After a food item has been chosen, the device emits a scent that resembles the foods, with the optimum distance 400 mm from the device. To give it that added sense of realism, the 'Hana Yakiniku' even makes a sizzling sound to satisfy all your cravings. All you'll need is "some white rice" and your stomach will, apparently, feel fully appeased. Stats for Portable Food Scent Emitters Trending: Older & Buzzing
