SMELLIT works just like your printer, but instead of ink cartridges, it works with smell cartridges.
As your DVD player reads the video and sound information, SMELLIT processes the DVD smell information 10 to 20 seconds ahead of the actual scene so the odours have time to reach the spectators.
God I used to LOVE this!!!
BIG TRAK was a programmable electric vehicle created by Milton Bradley in 1979. It was a six-wheeled tank with a front-mounted blue photon beam headlamp, and a keypad on top.
Big Trak could remember up to 16 commands which it then executed in sequence (such as “go forward 5 lengths”, “pause”, “turn 30 degrees right”, “fire phaser” and so on. Cool at the time.
I was the odd one out at school because i went for Total Control Racing (TCR) not Scalextric. Rebel eh.
The big boys are coming to mobile, we all know that, and it seems people are happy using ‘branded’ apps as long as they’re kinda useful.
Coke go for their take on Spin The Bottle. It’s OK. Not something you can imagine using that often. Maybe one for the “yoofs”.
Nike offers a bit more. Training Club lets you login to your Nike Women account. There’s also links to your workout plan via YouTube.
Both are nicely designed, but Nike pips it for me.

I was talking to a mate a while back about throwing out all my old tapes. This might’ve changed my mind.
The Alesis TapeLink USB is a dual-well cassette deck designed to digitally archive audio. The device allows users to transfer cassette recordings onto a hard disk, flash memory, CD or iPod.
Connection to a computer is provided via USB, with support for 16-bit, 44.1 kHz CD-quality recordings. Two different dubbing modes support either normal or high-speed dubbing. The deck also features full auto-stop capability to keep irreplacable old tapes from breaking. It works with metal or CrO2 tapes and features on-board LEDs for visual reference to sound levels.
The device comes bundled with three different apps to assist in archiving: SoundSoap Standalone Edition (SE) for reduction of background noises such as room noise and electrical hum; Audacity, a lean, clean, excellent piece of audio-editing software; and EZ Tape Converter to assist with transfers.
TapeLink USB is compatible with Mac OS X and carries an estimated street price of £140.
