Steak-Scented Billboard Entices Drivers

samzenpus posted more than 4 years ago | from the steak-and-diesel dept.

Advertising 282

In addition to car exhaust and road grime, travelers along Highway 150 in North Carolina can now enjoy the smell of a barbecue thanks to a new billboard. The work of ScentAir, which provides custom scents for businesses, the advertisement for a local grocer emits the smell of charcoal and black pepper over the highway. "Marketing director Murray Dameron said the beef scent was emitted by a high-powered fan at the bottom of the billboard that blows air over cartridges loaded with BBQ fragrance oil. 'It smells like grilled meat with a nice pepper rub on it,' he explained."

There may be a lower fat content per unit of meat, but here's where you are a little shortsighted (no offense!!): the Canadians have stockpiles of bacon. Warehouses, supply depots, and bazaars. This is why the Canadians have such a strong economy now. They finally found their place in the world. Bacon.

I don't know about most Americans, but this American is fat because I sit at this computer all day, stuff my face with hot pockets and cheesy poofs, and the only thing close to 'exercise' I get is using the remote control or my smartphone. That's just my assumptions anyway, 'cuz I'm not a doctor.

A Scentsor? (3, Interesting)

Izabael_DaJinn (1231856) | more than 4 years ago | (#32512474)

I always wondered why there can't be an electronic way to generate smells, such as how a speaker produces sounds. Is it theoretically possible to ever create a machine or device that can create a variety of scents based on some sort of scent-spectrum? Or are "cartridges loaded with BBQ fragrance oil" the best we'll ever do? (This is one of those questions I have always wondered but been afraid to ask!)

Sound is a compression wave where smells are chemicals.

Re:A Scentsor? (5, Interesting)

Shadow Wrought (586631) | more than 4 years ago | (#32512626)

AFAIK, the easy part is generating the smell. The difficult part is how to move from one smell to another. Once the speakers stop, the sounds waves stop propogating almost immediately. But a smell will still be lingering. I believe they tried this with some movie houses back in the 50's (billed as Smell-O-Vision probably:-) and they just couldn't get one smell out of the theatre in time for the next one.

I'm also pretty sure I don't want to think about how some web sites would actually use such technology for generating a profit.

Re:A Scentsor? (4, Interesting)

wjousts (1529427) | more than 4 years ago | (#32513212)

Producing a single smell (like steak) or a small number of smells is easy. Generating a system that would be flexible enough to cover a wide range of the "aroma space" is much more difficult. That aside, your point about lingering is also very true. It's pretty hard to suck the aroma back out of a space and there are problems with contamination as well (example, I was grilling over the weekend and the clothes I wore that day still smell like smoke).

Re:A Scentsor? (1)

jgagnon (1663075) | more than 4 years ago | (#32513526)

This sort of thing will be far easier once everyone has the proper brain implants. Then they could just program the right smell into your brain, no chemicals and no mess!

I sure as hell hope we never get to that day, though. :(

No more so than a printer has to synthesise arbitrary coloured dyes.

Re:A Scentsor? (4, Insightful)

wjousts (1529427) | more than 4 years ago | (#32512998)

Printer -> 4 colors (3 primaries plus black)

Smell-o-whatever -> several hundred different aroma compounds

That's your problem. There is, as far as anybody's been able to demonstrate, such a thing as a primary odor. You have somewhere in the region of 1000 different odor receptors in your nose but they are mostly non-specific and have overlapping sensitivities that make it next to impossible to reproduce all possible aromas from a small subset of chemicals. Couple that with the fact that aroma chemicals are, by necessity, volatile (otherwise you couldn't smell them) and you have a real problem with shelf-life too. If you had an olfactometer with a few hundred chemicals for producing smells, you would be forever having to replace the chemicals because they have evaporated away.

Re:A Scentsor? (2, Interesting)

kno3 (1327725) | more than 4 years ago | (#32513426)

you would be forever having to replace the chemicals because they have evaporated away.

I can't see that that would be a problem. Printer ink is volatile, but that has a reasonable shelf life. You just keep it in a closed container until it is actually needed. In fact, if you didn't do that then your "olfactometer" (surely it would be more a olfactoducer) would constantly be producing the biggest concoction of scents it could muster.

those can't produce arbitrary smells, they're preprogrammed and loaded with the appropriate chemicals to emit the specific smells needed for that particular ride.

Re:A Scentsor? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#32513138)

Sound is basically a wave through a medium (air), whereas a scent is a specific molecule in air that your nose senses. There is no easy way to 'create' that molecule. So.. you need the scent cartridges to introduce those scent molecules into air.

Re:A Scentsor? (4, Informative)

wjousts (1529427) | more than 4 years ago | (#32513166)

You can't electronically reproduce a smell in a way analogous to a speaker. Olfaction is a chemical sense (along with taste) and requires chemicals to be present in order to be smelt. In other words, any device for producing aromas has to have a reservoir of aroma chemicals already present, in the same way a printer must have a reservoir of ink. Unfortunately, unlike a printer where you can produce a good range of colors from 3 primary colored inks, the same doesn't happen with smell. There is no such thing (as far as anybody has been able to identify) as a primary smell. You can't reproduce the smell of benzaldehyde by mixing other chemicals in any simple straightforward way.

That's not to say you can produce a range of aromas by mixing chemicals, of course you can, it's what perfumers and flavorist do all day; but the palette of chemicals they use for, say, producing steak aromas is both large and quite different than the palette they'd use to produce, say, strawberry aromas. If you wanted a palette that could reasonably cover the entire range of aromas you might smell in everyday life (from steak and strawberries to gasoline and dog shit) it would easily run into several hundred chemicals.

The technology should be completely banned. It's hard enough for those with chemical sensitivities to go about their lives without getting sick as it is. Having billboards distributing fragrances which may or may not make people sick is just wrong. It's bad enough for those of us that just have easily irritated noses, I feel sorry for the people that get really sick.

I live near a facility that manufactures food flavorings and scented additives, most notably ALL the scented oils that are used in the production of a well-known national candle store. At times, depending on the temperature and density of air and the speed and direction of wind, the heavy combination of scents can linger. It's not too bad actually; it almost smells like incense, however I can see how some people could be irritated by it.

No offense - well, maybe some, but it's not like those guys are trying to attract guys... I think Old Spice and Axe are probably more effective than burnt gas when attracting girls, because... well, they like it. But back on-topic - I think smoking should be banned country-wide because it makes my wife sick just to have the windows down in-town because of all the other drivers who are smoking (she has a strong nose). So, work on banning that, then worry about the billboards.

Re:EIR (1)

lowrydr310 (830514) | more than 4 years ago | (#32513540)

I hear you.. I often wonder if all the cars of the era smelled like that, if it's a side effect of burning modern fuels in an older engine, or if the old engine itself isn't properly tuned (fuel/air mixture, timing, etc.).

None of the 60's era muscle cars I've seen drag strips smell like that, and they're all carbureted and burning pump gasoline (not leaded or oxygenated racing fuel or specialty fuels). My guess is that it's related to carburetor tuning. Come to think of it, I've seen plenty of 80s and early 90s era cars that smell just as bad, despite having some emissions controls - maybe it is more closely related to the timing and fuel/air mixture than anything else.
