CD-like device contains scent chemicals
A CD-like disc is coated with micro-encapsulated, very concentrated scent chemicals- (like the "scratch 'n' sniff patches on mafazine ads) - these different scents are arranged on the disc in concentric bands. The TV receives a coded signal from the broadcaster containing a "scent code." A laser then "burns" selected tracts of scent to replicate the desired odor. The resulting blend of scents is dispersed from the TV set with a fan. Battle scenes could be accompanied with the smell of blood and sweat and gunpowder, love scenes could smell like-well, you get the idea.
