Although good devices exist for presenting visual and auditory sensations, there has yet to be a device for presenting olfactory stimulus. Nevertheless, the area for smell presentation continues to evolve and smell presentation in multimedia is not unlikely in the future.
Human Olfactory Displays and Interfaces: Odor Sensing and Presentation provides the opportunity to learn about olfactory displays and its odor reproduction. Covering the fundamental and latest research of sensors and sensing systems as well as presentation technique, this book is vital for researchers, students, and practitioners gaining knowledge in the fields of consumer electronics, communications, virtual realities, electronic instruments, and more.
Reviews and Testimonials
Electronic and other engineers review the current status of a human-computer interface for smelling that is analogous to visual and auditory interfaces. Much research has been conducted on sensing, the input half of the interface, but very little yet on display, the output half. For scientists new to the field, they set out the fundamentals before describing recent research. The topics include interaction of olfaction with vision or other senses using olfactory display, odor recording, whether electronic mucosa is a natural successor to the electronic nose system, olfactory display based on ink jet printer mechanisms and its presentation techniques, and display technology of images with scents and its psychological evaluation
