In partnership with Dr Jenny Tillotson, Senior Research Fellow and Director of Scentsory Design® at Central Saint Martins (University of the Arts London), DIAM Europe and AC2i / OlfaCom have realised the olfactive stage setting of the ‘Smart Second Skin’ dress.
A conceptual dress that in the future, will offer a new method of scent delivery which interacts with the body (via nanotechnology), the ‘aroma rainbow’ dimension is an integral part of the user’s sensory experience.
By enhancing different emotional states through vision and olfaction, the spectrum of scents in the dress creates a new olfactory experience.
To mimic this process, screen monitors activated by touch, release scents corresponding to the colours of the tubes in the dress and OlfaCom’s unique technology is able to master the distribution of smells.
