Videotronic International has come up with with "DVD with smell". It has released an interactive Aerome kiosk where consumers can smell a product - coffee through to perfume.
The kiosk uses Philips DVD technology that Videotronic maintains offers easy accessibility to audio, video and graphics, all of which can be easily extended.
"Smell is just as relevant to a buyer as price, quality, performance or design," commented a spokesperson for Videotronic.
The Aerome kiosk allows a scent to be activated time and time again, without a second's delay. The intensity of the scent can be regulated.
A 14 inch touchscreen monitor is used as a printing device to activate the video sequence which shows a commercial for the product. During the video sequence the DVD player triggers the scent generator to release the smell of the product.
