It’s not that smartphones smell bad by any means (although they are covered in trillions of germs), but it doesn’t hurt to make the area around you smell good. A Japanese perfume company called Chaku Perfume has made a small iPhone accessory that allows you to remotely trigger a puff of fragrance or other smell to someone else’s iPhone.
Using the accompanying app, you can send a fragrance blast to a friend who also has the accessory and app. And of course, you can trigger smells on your own device as well if you’re in the mood for a good scent. We can’t deny that this would make a great gag gift, and the reactions of the ladies in the video below will probably be the best thing you watch all day.
The accessory plugs into your iPhone’s 30-pin port (sorry iPhone 5 users), and contains an atomizer and a small tank of the perfume of your choice. Once the device is plugged in and you have the app ready to go, it’s all a matter of tapping a button to release a small scent of perfume for your nose to enjoy.
The Chat Perf costs $63, which is a little pricy for a device like this. As mentioned, it would certainly make a great gag gift, but $63 is a bit much for such a product. We’re also not sure how refills work or how much they cost, but hopefully it’s nothing like printer ink, where you pay $20 for a refill for what seems like every two weeks.
