Envisioning a future where you could smell, touch and taste anything before buying or playing with it, CD&I Associates is set to evolve your net surfing and shopping habits or trends, allowing technology to build new interactive media which can be accessed anywhere, anytime. Designed as a part of “La Fin Du Design” Exhibition, the “Sense” is wireless device that allows consumers to have a closer approach with their favorite web sites, movies and games, creating a strong sensitive and more emotional connection between users and experiences.

Presenting a tactic sensitive screen to create a tactile experience of the physical, thermal and haptical properties of the products, the device also integrates a smell magnification system that allows the consumer to sense the product or area pointed in his or her computer screen. The sensitive gadget has a smell and flavor-ink micro-printer, made out with 13 basic combinations of wax cartridges, that print and melt simulated flavors to offer a complete interactive experience (combined with computers) to the users.

The five cartridges of fundamental flavors, including sour, bitter, sweet, spicy and salty, are combined with seven wax cartridges with the basic smells that exist in nature and which practically allow recreating any possible existing combination, classified in floral, mint, ethereal, camphor, musk, spicy and putrid smell. The mix of 13 cartridges allows the user to perceive the things visible on the screen, as the Sense prints little translucent sheets which dissolve in the roof of the mouth. In this way the small degustation sheets of the selected products are combined with the smells that the micro emanators expel, so the user could get them at the moment they are selected on the screen.

The Sense also features a touchscreen display which provides ease and agility in the information by recreating the tactile experiences of the selected products. All the user need to do is insert his or her hand in the Sense sheath and feel different impressions such as temperature, roughness, softness, hardness or pressure, thanks to the nanotechnology. The different nerve receptors in the hand translate the different types of stimulations into information which can be interpreted by the brain. In addition, the device can be programmed with voice and read Braille text for the visually impaired. Moreover, new Sense apps can be downloaded from internet to enhance the sensory experience of the customers.
