This could be a game changer! Google took another step forward today toward the full senses user experience with the launch of their newest product, Google Nose. The product intersects “photons with infrasound waves” and “temporarily aligns molecules to emulate a particular scent.” The “mobile aroma indexing program” at the heart of the product has amassed a “15 million scentibyte database of smells from around the world.”

What’s that smell? Google Nose leverages new and existing technologies to offer the sharpest olfactory experience available:
- Street Sense vehicles have inhaled and indexed millions of atmospheric miles.
- Android Ambient Odor Detection collects smells via the world’s most sensible mobile operating system.
- SMELLCD™ 1.8+ high-resolution compatible for precise and controlled odors.
Google did it again. Another fun practical joke-based holiday celebration. If only it were true!
