Smell Features and Computer Hardware

Imagine computer hardware that put out a smell while you watched DVD, online movie, music video, or played a video game? All that is now possible and it is on its way as we speak, perhaps hitting the shelves by 2012 for those personal tech leading edge early adopters. Who knows maybe you are one, and this is intriguing to you. Well then, let’s discuss this new technology and some of its implications.

There was an interesting article recently in PC World in the Geek Tech section titled; “Smell-O-Vision Wafts Closer With New Research Project” by Elizabeth Fish published on June 20, 2011. The article said;

“Forget 3D HDTV; here comes smell-o-vision! Maybe. Researchers from the UCSD & Samsung’s (SAIT) have developed a smell-o-vision concept device, which could add another aspect of realism to what you watch on TV. In a proof of concept paper, researchers showed it is possible for 1,000s of smells using a ‘compact device’ that attached to the back of a screen or built into a cellphone. The team built the device in such a way that keeps costs and circuitry down to produce around 10,000 scents.”

That is rather interesting isn’t it? Yes, it is and recently I was discussing all this with a fellow think tanker, Troy LaClaire, and I laughed and said; okay, but then you’d need special smell-neutralizing kits to de-smell your house each month. He agreed and suggested that we invest in a home smell air-cleaning system and get on board for the great wave in a new industry? Well, that makes sense, may as well hedge your bet, and make even more money that’s funny.

Troy had suggested that the system would have to use smells that would dissipate quickly, and possibly include an “air neutralizer” cartridge that would work in tandem, that way you could clear out smells, so that they don’t overlap too much. Yes, that is a great point, and yes that’s a big problem with chemicals accumulating, and then there is the whole issue with the human immune system and smells, and accumulated combining chemicals.

Troy mentioned another challenge which could cause lawsuits for a computer hardware smell system, namely that there would be the possibility of the units causing seizure, as some can be set off by specific smells so you do not want it to be something that might cause a seizure, while on the flip side some are preceded by specific smell ‘auras’ – so you do not want to freak someone out.

Yes, this is a real issue, it’s something that must be considered, there are folks that have Real Problems with this. Maybe there could be a list of scents one could block-out, kind of like not accepting peanuts on an airliner if you are allergic. It appears there are still a few bugs to work out on this technology, but it will be our future. Please consider all this.

Copy PC Games and Make Sure You Never Lose Another Game

After investing so much money for the chance to own the hottest, new-release computer games (one such is “Age of Empires”, manufactured by Microsoft), who would want to entertain the thought of those games than being destroyed at the careless hands of tiny children, or even being stolen by the very people we entertain in our homes at social gatherings?

However uncomfortable these thoughts are, one must put the loss of such invaluable assets like PC games into the perspective of the harsh economic times we are now faced with. No one can afford to invest in an expensive game like this, only to have to consider replacing it soon after.

With computers and Internet now available in virtually all corners of the world, there has never been an easier time to access the relevant technology to copy PC games. All laptops and computers are now manufactured with copying capabilities, so any person is able to copy PC games hassle-free and without even having to leave the home or office.

In order to copy these discs, one has to find special software that can decode the encryption that is embedded in most CD/DVD-ROM games. The embedded encryption is intended to protect the games from illegal duplication. The back-up software can be sourced online from the comfort of home, or office. Many websites offer great discounts and free trial periods to persons scouting around for good bargains.

If a person is willing to pay a reasonable price to access the back-up software, and also has no time to search for bargains, the Easy Back-up Wizard is a great find and can be had for a 1-time payment of about $30.00US.

The Easy Back-up Wizard is compatible with many CD/DVD-ROM based games. The speed at which the software will download is about 45 minutes, or less.

Once the software has been sourced and loaded on to the computer, the following actions are needed to complete the back-up process:

1. Insert the PC game and allow it time to be processed by the installed copy software.
2. Remove the game and insert all the blank discs you would like the PC game to be stored on. Follow closely the manufacturer’s instructions.
3. The process is deemed complete once the copy discs play back the game without any problems.

Creating copies of PC game original discs will enable owners of these games to have ease of mind. Now the originals can be carefully stored away eliminating the risk of theft and damage. The game would still be accessible from the copy disc, which costs much less if destroyed, but would still deliver the same quality effects of the original game.
