I may have to avoid playing certain video games if the SMELLIT ever goes from concept to reality. The SMELLIT is a conceptual device designed to add "a fourth dimension" to digital home entertainment.
The SMELLIT was designed by French company Nuno Teixeira for French company Olf-action. The device is designed to enhance your watching or gaming by releasing the right smells at the right time. For certain forms of entertainment such as cooking shows, this would be wonderful. For a video game such as "God of War" (pictured here) filled with blood, sweat and a few tears, the results would be mixed at best. Disgusting smells aside, the SMELLIT seems like an interesting concept. The device will be shown at the upcoming Lisbon Design Week.
