HOUSTON -– Smell-o-vision may finally be here in the form of a small device you plug into your iPhone.

This week DigInfo.TV released video of the prototype for Scentee. It was developed by the Japanese company ChatPerf.

This small device can be attached to smartphones to send smells to friends. The company also says it can be used to create smells during games or while watching videos to really put you into the atmosphere. For instance those popular “Candy Crush” games could put out a sweet, sugary odor.

The company says it hopes to develop an Android version by September.
