Clayodor

Today, I have found an amazing technology under research by which you can share your favorite smell just by a box called “clayodor”. let’s look at it or if you are too lazy to read watch my video.

 

you must have heard of a real-time system or dynamic executing programs but this element or object we can say is a dynamically controlled material. clayodor is a clay-like material that changes smell based on user manipulation of its shape. This work explores the tangibility of the shape-changing materials to capture smell, an ephemeral and intangible sensory input.

Research had explored material with dynamically changing qualities such as shape, stiffness, weight, and optical properties. Its prototype has been made. Researchers have explored the tangibility of shaping a malleable material to capture an ephemeral and intangible sensor input: SMELL.

By allowing users to take this material into their hands and physically shape it into various meaningful forms, we are aiming to explore the potential mental model of coupling these forms with smells. Similarly, the quality of the scent to connect people to memories and past experiences. However, there is no focus on the power for an object to be used as a symbol for the production or recall of mell. Further, researchers posit that because the smell is a distinctive difficult sense to describe, shaping and molding objects have the potential to forgo the necessity for users to attempt at providing a description of smells for recall.

The prototype  has

(1) a pressure sensing multi-touch mat,

(2) a vaporized scent

(3) clay material for user manipulation, and

(4) a fabricated case.

Users can form the clay material into different shapes, and place it on the pressure-sensing mat. The mat is integrated with a machine-learning algorithm that distinguishes between different shapes. Once the shape is detected and recognized, the vaporization system triggers the respective scent. The vaporization system consists of multiple small discs connected to containers filled with different scented liquids. When a certain signal is received, the corresponding disc starts vibrating at high frequency, turning liquid into vapor.

You can also share scents over a distance

Do you find this exciting too, please share,like and comment this post so that other peple can also know about such amazing technologies.
