postal scrotum: olfactory information

My brother David writes in response to my meandering post on ultimates, ineffability, cognition, and intersubjectivity:

yeah baby

they've had scent machines out for a while now - machines that use a few basic scent elements and combine them together to create almost any scent imaginable... and a tiny fan blows the scent toward the user. yew online. games are looking to use this to create a gaming experience with more depth... walk into a dark cave, you'll smell the cave. you're online and looking at chocolate chip cookies - you'll smell the cookies.

no more need to describe baby - "It smells like this..." - click. Done baby.

yew online.
