Scientists from UCSD have developed a device that could eventually allow smells to waft your way from your television or cell phone. The researchers successfully tested their technology with two perfumes - "Live by Jennifer Lopez" and "Passion by Elizabeth Taylor."

The plan is to allow TVs and iPhones to waft 10,000 different scents at viewers and users.

This is great news, since it gives me yet another excuse to sit on the couch all day. Instead of going outside, I could smell the salt of the ocean and the rose garden of Balboa Park from the comfort of my own home.

Wait a minute! Why does it smell like despair in here?
