Japanese scientists invent smells printer

This isn’t a joke: Japanese scientists from Keio University have developed a technology that lets you print smells using a modified ink-jet printer, thus turning it into an “olfactory display”. So now, not only can you look at pictures of delicious foods when you’re on a diet, you can also actually smell them…

Wonder when they’ll make chocolate-tasting paper though?
