that sounds so fascinating! i always wondered how a scent could be digitalized… =)
I have a feeling that using this thing regularly could run up some serious bills…you'd have to replace the scent cartridges, right? And it sounds to me like it is a long way away from actually duplicating a commercial perfume.
I am sure you are right and it would be really expensive! And I wonder how fine tuned it would actually be? I think it'd be neat to try out a couple times, but I think only for things we couldn't find in the store ourselves, huh?
I have a feeling the technology won't really duplicate a perfume yet…I mean, you have to have all the ingredients loaded yourself, and how can you have all the ingredients? I don't see how it can do more than approximate a smell. But someday….
Oh my… I can't imagine how much it'd cost to re-fill! And if you wanted premium e.o.'s instead of synthetics? LOL!
I do wonder though, what the first machines would be like though! And wouldn't that mean that the companies would have to give away their secret recipes?
