inScent: A Wearable Olfactory Display for Mobile Notifications

The olfactory display utilizes various scents to send different mobile notifications to participants. Different kinds of easy-distinguished scents are chosen, such as flowers, mint, lavender and lemon. Moreover, a mobile app called Anbient Smell is developed on android phone, through which a user can manually trigger the scents to get familiar with them. Then, the users can assign different scents for the given scentifications, including Scented message(text messages), Scented Reminder( Calendar event),, Time Sense(to trigger a feeling for the passing of time) and Scented Event (the delivery of an important parcel). Then, participants are required to wear the InScent device in university space setting, and a semi-structured interview is conducted to get the qualitative feedback of the process.
