That's actually not entirely true. Your memory and feelings are probably more tied into you sense of smell than any of the other senses. The difference being that it is largely subconscious, so you don't realize it's happening.

If this is executed properly, you will not even really notice that the aroma in the room has changed unless the show really wants you to. I imagine things like forests would give off the gentle smells you experience there. You don't often comment on them, but they are certainly there if you pay attention.

If you ask me, this is a great next step into the all-encompassing experience. I think games and movies will eventually mesh into one virtual experience, where the audience actually interacts with the characters as the story moves on. Once we start seeing augmented reality go main stream, which is still some time away, I think the sense of smell will become a large player in setting the scene and environment.

Could you imagine watching a virtual reality version of a movie like Avatar complete with smell? Would really be an experience.

A company did this about a decade ago at one of the SIGGRAPH conferences. They had 4 or 5 scents that changed with the videos on screen. One was of a new car smell, one was burning rubber when the car took off, anther was dirt when it went off road and another was the scent of the ocean when it drove by the beach.

By the third day, we were sick of it and nothing smelled the same as day one. We could actually start smelling the chemicals they used instead of the final scent.

Especially for all those nerd-virgins...

I actually relate the vast majority of my day to smell...My office generally smells fresh/clean...Dell's main office smells like BO and is generally very stuffy; thus I hate going there...

It's weird how much you actually associate smell with...

I think if done right, this would be awesome...Imagine smelling "dust" in BF3 as the wind howls past you...

Umm what if I'm watching a zombie movie and the main character is walking through a ravaged town of bodies and zombies? Who would want to smell rotting flesh????

I doubt it will ever go mainstream, but if it does, this is going to take solvent abuse to a whole different level...I just don't see this ever getting beyond concept stages.

I feel like people assume that film-makers and users will be required to add a smell to every aspect of every movie.

I'm willing to bet that the more disgusting smells will not be present in most cases, I imagine this to be particularly true during the adoption stages.

I also imagine this would be more of an atmosphere building device.
