• Podcast Episode 2: Sad and fleeting, but beautiful

    In the second Basenotes podcast, our panel discuss the idea of sending smells digitally, and the uses and problems that may arise. Would the ability to send a smell be useful? If a scent can be recorded digitally, and resniffed at will, would it lose some of its beauty?

      There is no way to transmit an actual smell unless it is teleported. However, if the phone is loaded with a few basic components, as in an ink jet printer, that when combined can create the jest of the smell, then possibly.
