Have you ever learned about the brand new smell-o-matic features which are coming soon to your video match, tablet, laptop, SmartPhone, or PC near you? Well, there’s been a little bit of promotion on these new technology innovations which will permit a user to amuse their own sense of smell while they have been watching a music video, playing a video game, even watching a picture, and sometimes even watching a commercial in their iPad, iPhone, or alternative personal technician device.
Indeed, with most of the current innovation and Programs available today, it had been merely a matter of time until it was perfected. Well, here we have been and also the prototypes operate well, and so on these features will probably be integrated into all of our personal tech toys. Now then, that really is fantastic yes, but”What If” the hackers break in your personal computer or tech device and then play a prank ?
Consider if you will just how episode hack terrible it would be if hackers discharged off your smell-o-matic and also made it smell like dog crap, even when it had been supposed to smell like Diet Cherry Coke. In actuality, although only a hacker’s prank, it’d really be a bummer for the user, as you couldn’t go anywhere if you smelled just like a skunk for example?
Yes, maybe it might be a pretty fantastic solution to catch terrorists, hack on their cell phone produce them smell, just like bankrobbers when the red dye pack pops, they are all reddish, and stand out in a crowd, and the money can’t ever be properly used, since it’s red too. But people with asthma or children with glaucoma would be contested in case their smartphones were hacked, therefore they would need that feature switched away.
Did you know that the military has smell sensor technology that could be used in a Attack Helicopter as being a warning system; that is practical as a result of sensory perception overload and issues with target affixation in a night-system. And we mightn’t need those systems to get hacked and see a false positive of a shoulder-launched, heat-seeking, hand held anti-aircraft missile lock if you were arriving at them.
Not long ago, I was discussing the need for hacker-proof safety with these new smell-o-matic technology regardless of application, and also a fellow think tanker, Troy LaClaire, said;
“Like most technology you can find good ideas and bad things. To prevent hackers from getting, you truly need to lock down it, yet on the flip side I am also for people being able to do whatever they desire with a thing they own.”
Of course he is right isn’t he, and we can not keep back these technologies just because they will be the apparent goal of hacking pranks. Afterall, the commercial uses are endless. For instance, restaurant advertisers round lunch time, will want to send you the charbroiled smell of the Japanese bacon cheese burger, once you go near to a local Carl’s Jr. restaurant, directly?
Troy concurs stating;”Yesthat would succeed, but may be necessary to work in something for users to be able to turn the units off, as sometimes it is nearly appropriate.”
Yah, particularly if they’re in a more”Weight Watchers” conference! Haha ha. Any way, I hope you may all please consider all of this and consider it.
