One step closer...

"The technique could one day be used to create videogames in which you can smell, taste, and touch, or to help people who are blind or deaf. "
One step closer to Neuromancer. Just tell me when I can jack into cyberspace and become really Chrome.

A new “sense”?

I bet it would be easier to develop this kind of technology in the direction of creating a new "sense" (or "sensation") that the brain would learn to interpret, instead of trying to create specific sensations (like, say, the smell of rose, or of smoke).
