How about an app that lets you taste and smell things right on your iPhone? Yeah, I know April Fools’ Day is over, but apparently some people fell for this joke, including this news anchor who tricked her colleague into smelling and licking an iPad during live broadcast.

“The creators have found the way to emit the odors and the flavors right out of a smartphone,” he told her. Piezzo-electrics is the name of a technology behind this magic, he convinced her. It was an April Fools’ Joke but it’s making rounds this morning in the Mac blogosphere so I thought I’d share it with you.
