Multisensory TV

Multisensory TV

Creating truly compelling TV that stimulates all our senses is not an easy task. Programme makers and technology manufacturers know how to design their products so you can see depth and distance on the screen. But sound and vision aren’t always enough. Being able to smell the odours that a character on screen would smell, or feel the objects or atmosphere they would feel, can create anticipation and build suspense in the same way as sound currently does. The question for the TV industry is what multisensory experiences should it design for – and how. The SCHI Lab is trying to better understand how we use our senses so that designers and developers can help us interact with their technology in the most compelling way possible.

About the SCHI Lab

The SCHI Lab research lies in the area of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), an area in which research on multisensory experiences makes a difference on how we design and interact with technology in the future. The interdisciplinary team explores tactile, gustatory, and olfactory experiences as novel interaction modalities.
