Claycord.com is known for being first when it comes to news in Contra Costa County, but now, as many long-time readers have pointed out, Claycord also came first with an April Fool’s Day joke that’s now getting Worldwide attention.
Google announced over the weekend that they’ve created Google Nose, which allows you to smell scents through your computer. This is obviously an April Fool’s Day Joke, and if it sounds familiar to long-time readers of Claycord, it should, because this same April Fool’s Day joke was published on Claycord.com on April 1, 2010.
Here’s the story from Claycord in 2010. Enjoy!
This is amazing. This one man & his invention could put Concord on the map for something other than the Spirit Poles and the Charlie Brown Christmas Tree.
John Rogers, who just happens to be a Concord native & Clayton Valley High School graduate, has created a new computer program, which allows you to smell different scents over the internet.
The following is a press release from CLSV Marketing, Inc. regarding the new invention….
BAY AREA RESIDENT ANNOUNCES NEW “SMELL SCREEN”
Groundbreaking invention will let you smell through your computer
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif – March 31, 2010 – CLSV Marketing, Inc. (nasdaq: CLSV) today announced new technology, created by Bay Area native and Silicon Valley Pioneer John Rogers, which will enable you to smell pictures on your computer screen.
“It was created on a whim”, said Rogers, who also serves as Vice-President of ABA Technologies, a Cupertino based company that distributes netbooks to non-profits throughout the Bay Area.
“This technology will not only let you smell the fresh scent of a flower without stepping outside, but it will also let you experience the wonders of the Brazilian Rainforest, the African Desert & the Fresh Pineapple of Hawaii, and the only thing your required to do is put your nose to the computer screen”, Rogers said during a press conference in San Francisco late this evening.
The downloadable program, which was distributed this week, is available free of charge to website administrators until May 3, 2010. Currently, the technology is being rolled out in four phases, with the western United States being first, and the South East being last.
Scroll up, lean over and smell the rose pictured above, it’s almost like you’re standing in a garden full of fresh flowers.
