It’s here! The first ever scented smartphone game is finally here! Pop Secret recently launched a mobile game that does not only engage your hearing, sight, and taste, but your smell as well!
This one-of-a-kind game, called Poptopia, allows players to experience the smell of buttered, freshly-popped popcorn. The aim of the game is to feed “The Almighty Mouth” as many popped kernels as possible; when gamers successfully swipe the butter, the Pop Dongle releases a scented spritz. Technically speaking, this scent is released via the dongle, which is plugs into the phone’s audio jack, through a sub-audible frequency that tells the dongle to emit the smell.
Unfortunately, the Pop Dongle is limited in quantity, with only three limited edition collections having been auctioned off on eBay. On the bright side, however, all of the auction proceeds went to the American Red Cross. Although this nifty gadget is not yet available to the public, anyone with an iPhone can play Pop Secret’s mobile game, Poptopia, simply by downloading it free from the app store.
The first-ever scented mobile video game has been featured worldwide on a multitude of media platforms. Some of the biggest hits featuring the Pop Dongle are covered by USA Today, the Associated Press (AP), and tech guru David Pogue.
