This coming November, Japanese fragrance startup Scentee will unveil Hana Yakiniku ("Nose Grilled Meat"), an add-on device for smartphones designed to upgrade your dining experience by giving off the aroma of a delicious Yakiniku BBQ dinner.

The scent cartridge is priced at 3,480 yen ($35.57 USD) and comes in three scents (short ribs, beef tongue and buttered potato) along with a free smartphone app.
