Aromatography -- April Fool's Day, 2010
Kodak announced that thanks to a recent breakthrough in "Neuro-Optic-Nasal-Sense Imaging" (aka NONSense), their researchers had developed a way to create "aromatized still images." They called the technology Aromatography.


It was anticipated that it would soon be possible to apply the technology to video devices, creating Smellevision.

However, the company cautioned that not everyone could smell the images. "Emerging trends indicate a significantly greater response among subjects born in the months between May and June."
