I've heard of several smartphone makers looking into the ability to "text" or e-send in some way, odors and scents. The only real way to do this (other than waiting for actual star-trek replicators) is to have a device on the receiving end that can concoct what amounts to perfumes using a few basic liquids in varying amounts, then vaporizing them and sending a small puff out to the user. I would not be surprised if this patent has to do with that.

Although an Apple E Cig sounds interesting, (Apple E' Smell-o'rama as proposed above less so), more likely this is related to recent advances and stated commitments in area of holographic projection (guessing vapor a possible solution to the "media" problem - plain old air doesn't hold an image very easily).

Or this could have more to do with a technique for vaporizing chemical compounds for deposition onto surfaces... but the perfume idea is interesting as well...

I'm thinking it's for a holographic display.

Peter 207's notion re "vaporizing chemical compounds for deposition onto surfaces" sounds nebulous enough to be correct answer... Only have no idea what it means. Translation?
