What could possibly be better than the delicious smell of crispy bacon, besides actually eating it?
Enjoying that smell whenever you want, of course. A new plug-in smartphone device from Japan allows you to do just that, Engadget reported Friday.
The small, bulb-shaped "Scentee" is both iOS and Android-compatible, and works by releasing a puff of scented air and lighting up whenever you receive a notification. You control what notifications trigger the aromatic alerts via the partner app. The smell comes from a scented cartridge inside the device that's good for 100 emissions.
If the bacon makes want to ditch your upcoming meeting for lunch instead, there's several other scents to choose from, including apple, cinnamon roll, coffee, coconut, corn soup, curry, jasmine, lavender, mint, rose, strawberry and ylang-ylang.
According to the New York Daily News, Nov. 15 will be a banner day for Korean barbecue aficionados. Scentee will add a limited-edition scent collection to the lineup, featuring short ribs, beef tongue and baked potato.
Ready to buy it? As of now, the device and cartridges are listed as backordered, but available on Nov. 15 on Amazon Japan for approximately $35.75 for the device and $5.40 for the scent cartridge. The company has plans to sell the product to American consumers too, with a link for overseas shipping information on the product page.
