Fujitsui's Feature Phone Features Fragrance Chip

It's typically atypical, which is something that might be expected from a Japanese firm like Fujitsu. Although this phone isn't even a smartphone, and doesn't appear to have Android on it, but one thing's for sure: it doesn't stink.

That's right, despite what you might think from the description, this "gorgeously designed" flip phone doesn't stink, because it has a special chip where a woman can dab her perfume. The phone also has a "diamond-like jewel block of two-karat cubic zirconia."

The new mobile phone, dubbed the Fujitsu F-022, is the result of a collaboration between Fujitsu and jewelry, watches and accessories brand Folli Follie, which is popular in both Japan and China, the target market. Sales of the F-022, which sounds more like a fighter jet, will begin on June 24, 2011 at Beijing Digital Telecom Co., a Chinese mobile phone chain with over 1,000 stores.

The phone will run on both China Mobile and China Unicom. In addition to its fashionable exterior, the F-022 sports an 8.1-megapixel camera, with a "beautiful skin mode," and is water resistant, to boot. Fujitsu said the target audience in China are 20 to 40 year-old women with a "well-developed sense of fashion."

While we said that the "fragrance chip" feature meant that the phone wouldn't "stink," despite our opinion, we could be wrong. After all, the "fragrance chip" is detachable.

Still, despite the fact that this is just a feature phone, with all this bling, the F-022 might just succeed and come up smelling like roses.

Although this phone isn't even a smartphone,

"If  the audience in China that are 20 to 40 year-old women with a "well-developed sense of fashion." don't have a taste for a smart phone then they pretty much don't have a "well-developed sense of fashion." This is just looks like they trying to sell an 8.1 mega pixel camera with phone capabilities and a wireless Glade plug in fragrance.'

Is there a problem with phones having a bad smell? Seems very pointless, but my phone doesnt smell.

Wow the Japanese really come up with some crazy ideas. I have heard of phones being covered with tons of bacteria but never have I heard of one that smelled. I guess a woman can dab her perfume on the phone and walk through a crowded area and attract all the guys. Who's to say a man could not dab his cologne on it and do the same...

Meh, what I'm looking forward to is when they bring more scent technology to video games. Imagine, when you go through a pine forest, you smell pines and when you go into a burning village, you smell smoke. It would take a while to reach perfection (but what is perfection, just about everything can be improved :) ), but it would sure add a lot of realism to games. Not sure how they would go about reproducing the right smells and scents though.lol

"Come to think of it, it would have been cool if it has a silent mode were instead of vibrating , it would alert you by activating the fragrance. Even Better Yet, A customize scent for each contact, the worst smell goes to your mother on law."

That would be pretty cool to have smells produced in video games, but instead of having the fumes of smell produced to trigger your smell receptors the person could have electric devices to trick the mind. May sound like a crazy idea, but perhaps electric current could be ran to certain receptors to trigger them. Many test have shown electric current can have many different effects on the human brain.

NTT (Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation) has created a remote "mind control" device that tricks a persons ear receptor to make them think they are off balance so they change their footing or body to compensate. Allowing the controller to make the person walk.

PS: just another crazy idea i thought up and you probably shouldn't listen to it because i am not a neurologist.
