I totally agree with Fred.

The websites have inherent limitations in the degree to which it can contribute to experience. For all intents and purposes it is a medium that directly affects only two different senses, sight and hearing. The most powerful experiences touch all five senses (sight, hearing, touch, smell, taste), not just those two. Sensors for sight and hearing are well being developed now and will soon surpass human capabilities. The rest of sensors: touch, smell, and taste, have received attention and will be well developed soon. Thus, it is likely that the websites will contain information to satisfy all of the human senses.

AromaJet: Interactive transmission of Synthesized Smell over IP.

SensAble: Touch it devices.
