What We’re Smelling: Google Nose

Share & Comment

In case you missed it, today, Google unveiled the next greatest thing to come to the Internet since their search engine itself.  It is a completely new way to interact with the World Wide Web.  We are used to interacting with screens with our fingers, following digital text with our eyes, and listening to our Spotify playlists with our ears.  Never before have we been able to interact with our computers with our NOSE, but Google is determined to change this.  Today, they unveiled a project that puts Project Glass to shame: Google Nose.

Much like the strange vans driving down our roads, recording nearly every mile of road in our country, Google has sent vehicles abroad to index millions of atmospheric miles.  This means that they will have many of the smells that you have come to learn and love.  Living in Western Pennsylvania, I expect to see a Google van driving down my road, collecting the aromas of cow manure in the morning and burning coal.  Other features include Google’s Android Ambient Odor Detection and their high resolution SMELLCD.  

With over 15 million scentibytes and their “don’t ask, don’t smell” policy, what are you waiting for?  Head over to to see what all of the hype is really about!  You can even share your favorite aromas with your friends on Google+!  You now have the ability to smell everything from a dirty diaper to a great pyramid of the ancient world!

While walking the streets, how many people have you seen smelling their phones today?  Share your Google Nose experience and your favorite aromas in the comment section below.

  1. google nose : First, Google pranked its users by claiming to shut down YouTube; then, the search giant introduced old-school "Treasure Maps." But its pièce de résistance for this year's April Fools' Day has got to be google nose.

  2. I love the smell of fresh milk as it spurts out the cow. I live on a farm amd every morning I wake up and milk my cow. I only have one cow and he's very close to me. His name is Butty. Some people have suggested that I marry my cow because I seem to love it so much. But I feel as though our relationship can never move beyond the platonic stage and he will remain forever in the friendzone with milk benefits.
