We all deal with text, images, and audio content on our mobile devices. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could add another dimension by adding scents to your communications? Vapor Communications is making that possible with oPhone and its companion app oSnap. This iPhone application allows you to receive scent-tagged images. At first, you will be able to experience this at oPhone hotspots. The plan is to make this experience available anywhere.
Here is how the scent-based messaging platform onotes.com will work:
Users will obtain the mobile-messaging app oSnap in the Apple Store and download onto their iPhones for free; they will then be able to snap a photograph and tag any object in the photograph with a scent; creation of the scent will be facilitated by a scrolling window that presents up to 32 unique scents of which users can choose from one to eight, resulting in over 300,000 combinations; users will then be able to name the scent-tagged image and send it electronically to friends. Upon receiving a scent-tagged oNote, users can tap the oNote and be directed to onotes.com, where they will see the image and associated scents. If users possess an iPhone, they will be able to download their aromatic messages via an oPhone and smell the scents.
In the near future, we will be able to receive scent messages on our phones anywhere. Think about the possibilities. The first commercial oPhone will be delivered in 2015 but expect the project to go on Indiegogo on June 17.
