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.
Dark Matter experience
Science Museum Lates - Dark Matter Experience
Through a collaboration with Dr Roberto Trotta and his team at the Imperial College London, audiences experienced a multisensory installation at the most recent Science Museum Lates event (Wednesday 31 October 2018). Whilst relaxing in a dedicated space audiences travelled on a journey across the galaxy, narrated through their senses of touch, taste, smell, and sound. This installation made use of Ultrahaptics technology for mid-air touch stimulation, and OWidgets experts for the selection and delivery of a dark matter scent.

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.
