SEOUL, South Korea – In a recent patent filling by Samsung, it is revealed that the company is aiming at creating a mobile phone capable of spraying perfume under a set of predefined conditions.
The idea seems to be to add yet another notification possibility to the range of ways that a phone communicates with its owner, apart from the obvious cosmetic reasons.
The system will include one or several perfume tanks and especially-designed spraying mechanism. The mechanism will be triggered either by a button or software controls of the phone, or automatically when some prerequisites are met. This triggering may change a type or amount of perfume sprayed according to an increase or decrease in a user’s voice volume, according to a caller, according to user customization and/or according to a noise change in a user’s surroundings.
The idea of Samsung is certainly a prototype and it surely will give the company the opportunity to offer even wider range of mobile devices. This, however, seems to be followed closely by Sony, who is also planning the release of a perfume-equipped phone in colaboration with NTT Docomo.
