(head office: Kamakura-shi, Kanagawa; Representative Director: Daisuke Yanasawa) plan to start delivering on November 15, 2013 "Hana Yakiniku Kit," a jointly developed product that allows users to enjoy yakiniku on smartphones (Scentee device + three scents: short rib, beef tongue, steamed potato and butter), and release the iOS app "Hana Yakiniku" (free) on App Store on the same day.

This is an entertainment app that works with Scentee (URL: www.scentee.com), world's first attachment for smartphones, tablets, and PCs that disperses scents. In this project, ChatPerf is in charge of developing and distributing the device and providing SDK while KAYAK is responsible for designing/creating the app.
Hana Yakiniku is a trendy app just in time for the unprecedented meat craze represented by the social yakiniku party called Nikukai, 1-person yakiniku shops, and meat-focused food theme parks. Through sense of smell, it directly works on users' brain, and allows them to fully enjoy yakiniku.

- It offers three types of scents: short rib, beef tongue, and steamed potato with butter.

■Purpose and background of development
Designed to casually enjoy yakiniku on smartphones, this app was originally proposed by KAYAC's engineer and yakiniku freak at the "1st ChatPerf x crazy app Hackathon" idea competition event held by ChatPerf from February 23 to 24, 2013.
■How to use
Users only need to connect Scentee to the audio jack on iPhone and tap the button on the special app.
With simple operation, users can enjoy yakiniku through the nose to their hearts' content. We will further work to improve the app and enhance features, adding more types of meat.
