Japanese Scientists Can Make Prints That Smell

An amazing invention is going to be demonstrated by a team of Japanese scientists led by Kenichi Okada the Florence. Specialists from Keio University modified the conventional inkjet printer, and “taught” him to print images that are not only bright, but also have flavor.

The work is being conducted together with specialists from Canon. An unremarkable inkjet is turned into a real olfactory display. Mr. Okada said that the printers of this type are an ideal tool for the purpose, because they release the active ingredient in small portions, which allows fine control over the printing process. The current prototype produces flavors of lemon, vanilla, lavender, apple, cinnamon, grapefruit and peppermint. The main problem that remains is complete independence of the color and the smell. The next stage of the project will be to match the pictures and the smell.
