Something April fishy in Google Nose odor search engine

The nose knows: If only Google Nose were real.

Hold your nostrils! And behold the olfactory search engine called Google Nose.

The service lets you type in keywords for smells like “lemon” or “new car.” It’s being billed as an “Internet sommelier” with an “Aromabase” of over 15 million “scentibytes.”

“Street Sense vehicles have inhaled and indexed millions of atmospheric miles,” the Google Nose page says.

“Android Ambient Odor Detection collects smells via the world’s most sensible mobile operating system.”

“Don’t ask, don’t smell: For when you’re wary of your query–SafeSearch included.”

OK if that smells like a rotten Easter egg to you, Google Nose is of course something that would come naturally to Pinocchio.
