To the Editor of the New York Times,
I recently read this article about how several companies will be releasing products that allow users to send smells to each other in the same way someone might send a text message… My response; Welcome to the club! As a dog we’ve been sending messages through smells since the beginning! There’s no better way to get your message across. Imagine your son or daughter is sitting in their room and they get a ding on their smartphone, suddenly they smell lasagna… Wouldn’t that be infinitely more likely to entice them to the dinner table than a dinner bell or a loud yell? Now that humans will have the ability to send simple messages through smell it’s one step closer to having the ability to send messages of dominance and property ownership!! What will technology come up with next?!
All the best,
