Sensory Acumen has created this gaming product that they call GameSkunk, which is an olfactory device made to deliver scents to gamers, and it can do about 30,000 of them. I know what you are thinking: thirty thousand? Apparently, the company wants to put in smells like cooking food, battlefield explosions, race track crashes, and everything in between.
Okay, now is the time where I have to ask: do we really need scent in video games? I suppose I could have authentic paint and thinner smells for Epic Mickey 2, but I don’t want to see a GameSkunk for Conker’s Bad Fur Day or Boogerman. Yeah, we are turning back the clock for those video games, but I think you see what I am saying.
Now, here’s the deal. I have been to Sensory Acumen’s site, and I don’t see anywhere where it says that I can buy this. In fact, it looks like it is still under development as far as I can tell.
