Gadget can replicate odor

it was about time someone actually came out with these... and of course it was going to be the japanese.. this new device developed by scientist in tokyo analyzes smells, records it and then reproduces the scent by mixing 96 chemicals..the potential for technology like this is endless.. imagine buying new colognes youve never smelled, ordering those flowers, even ordering food online will be a whole new experience ..."allowing smells can be recorded in one place — by sensors in a mobile phone, for instance — and transmitted to appreciative noses halfway around the world."
