Psych! Apparently, last April 1, 2013, as a part of Google’s April Fool’s day tradition of publishing hoaxes and jokes on the internet. I think that that is awesome and hilarious since a Smell-O-Vision or a computer that smells is something that was commonly imagined in the future to one day exist! In the video I posted above, the faux-Engineer Lead indeed says, that it is a “phenomenon that has been promised in science-fiction for decades.”
The Google Nose BETA promotional advertisement video is absolutely hilarious! The girl in the video is inputting the smell of daisies into the new Google feature. I love that. Thank you Google for having a sense of humor and not taking yourselves so seriously ALL the time!
