Ema at the World Economic Forum filling bottles with scented oils
Scent-delivery technology presented at the World Economic Forum
Dr Emanuela Maggioni was invited to join the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland, this week to present the scent-delivery technology developed in our lab over the last years through our OWidgets project. Our scent solution is presented as part of the Tree VR multisensory experience which was created by the team of New Reality Co. The experience transforms the user into a rainforest tree where the user's arms are branches and the body the trunk. The user will experience the tree’s growth from a seedling into its fullest form and witness its fate first hand.

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.
