‘scent capturing postcard printer’ for sony by li jingxuan

 

 

china-based designer li jingxuan, has conceived a ‘scent capturing printer’ concept for sony that analyzes certain smells
coming from foods, and translates them into a postcard. the system works using an ‘electronic nose’, a sensor that samples pattern 
recognition to generate and characterize odors. the printer would then simulate these captured fragrances by mixing aroma based 
inks stored within the device and transferring them onto a special photo-paper stock modules. once printed, the user would peel 
a flap on the back side of the image to reveal the captured scents. the project adds a new dynamic perspective in communicating 
through interactive postcards, where the idea of sharing and capturing certain moments in time becomes highly enjoyable.
 
 
li jingxuan’s ‘scent capturing printer’ project took part in the 2012 sony student design workshop.

  • Telling from the fillets and slots at the bottom, this is definitely not a SONY-style design.

  • It must be the child inside of me, but I’m wondering what kind of postcard flatulence would create ;P A very cool product whose technology I can see being practical in more important or other aspects.
