Your smartphone can now generate the aromas of beef tongue and short ribs

We’ve arrived at a point in human history where we can smell food through our smartphones. Sorta. If you have a craving for some yakiniku (grilled meat), but also short on cash, there is an alternative. Use the “Hana Yakiniku,” or “Nose Grille Meat” system to supplement your meal with its scented air.

It’s as simple as downloading the app, plugging in the device into your smartphone, and basking in the aroma of delicious yakiniku. It will go on sale on Noveber 15 for 3,480 yen (US$35.57).

Replacement cartridges will sell for 1,000 yen (US$10.22). By investing in this device, you will surely have a cheaper and more aromatic – though not necessarily yummier – dinner. Scents come in three aromas: Short ribs, beef tongue, and buttered potatoes.

This device is recommended for women on a diet, students who are on a budget, or a couple who want to have a better dining experience.
