Fresh popcorn is one of those enticing scents that can tempt even those with the most solid willpower, which is exactly what Pop Secret was banking on when they released the Poptopia game’s somewhat bizarre add on. The Pop Dongle is a happy little piece of popcorn which plugs into your iOS device before releasing a torturous buttery aroma of fresh popcorn.
Billed as the world’s first “scented mobile gaming experience”, the Pop Dongle supposedly has enough power for between 500 and 1,000 spritzes of popcorn scent. The dongle links up to Pop Secret’s promotional game to enhance the gaming experience- and your cravings for a little snack.
For anyone who isn’t quite as enticed by the lingering smell of popcorn, there’s no need to start worrying just yet- that happy little Pop Dongle isn’t going to be in wide circulation. Although the Poptopia game is available for users from Apple’s App store, only one dongle actually exists so far, and it’s being sold on eBay to aid the American Red Cross. If you really love popcorn, mobile games, and want to do a little charity, the going price is only $152 on the auction so far.
