It’s only natural to assume that the future can have no effect whatsoever on what happens today, since it’s still ahead of us. For decades, though, physicists have worked to prove that what happens to particles in the future can actually impact particles today – an affect called retrocausality.

The theory is so fascinating, Einstein even tackled it. In the end, he disagreed, coining it, “spooky action at a distance,” but scientists aren’t so sure. Recently two physicists dug into the theory of retrocausality, with experts comparing particles to a blurry cloud, rather than billiard balls running down a table. As such, a particle may very well have the ability to impact the past as well as the future.

Will Computers Ever Engage All Five Senses?

In 1960, theater goers attending a screening of the film Scent of Mystery were treated to an experience that was new to the movie theater environment. While the audience enjoyed watching and hearing the movie, 30 scents were released into the theater at predetermined times, giving viewers the ability to actually smell the movie.

It was the first and last time this particular technique was used.

Smell-o-vision, as it was called, was likely abandoned for a reason. Movie theater viewers have no need to inhale the scene of someone's sweaty socks while trying to enjoy an action movie. However, in the world of technology, engaging all five senses isn't such a bad idea.
