The seat cushion would be porous and permeable by gases, and contain active charcoal, iron filings, and perhaps other materials. The purpose would be to deodorize gas that the person expells while sitting on it. The iron filings neutralize the hydrogen sulfide, the gas that causes the rotten egg smell
component of farts. The active charcoal takes care of any other smell components. This can be handy for use with people in enclosed offices who have problems with gas.

car, why trouble yourself with
the chemicals to make odours
go away? Just suck them out of
the car with a hose attached
to the underside of the seat.
