Good news, everyone!
GotFuturama.com reports that the Smelloscope, invented by the erstwhile Dr. Farnsworth of New New York in 3001, has fallen through a time warp to the present day:
While commercial suicide booths and the personal Tube Transport System haven’t materialized yet, the Smell-O-Scope seems to be making advances. At least from the first looks.
CNN’s offbeat syndication of the AP article “Rangers sniff out odors at big farms” features a picture of the so-called olfactometer in use. While it can’t sniff particles at great distances (it does the opposite and dilutes incomming stink by an exact ratio) it sure looks just like a portable version of Farnsworth’s invention.
