Memory Bottle Captures Audiovisual And ‘Smell’ Data
It looks like we are getting closer and closer to living in a futuristic world. There’s a new device that stores audiovisual memories along with smell. A man by the name of Hyun Jin Park has developed a remarkable piece of technology that stores videos as well as the odor of the particular memory.
Science claims that the sense of smell is one of the strongest trigger cues to invoke a memory, and perhaps we will see these you new gadgets replace current lockets that people carry of their loves ones.
The icons will appear as holograms and the device itself will have touch sensor icons to pause, fastforward, and rewind the video. It’s called a memory bottle and bio particles stick out from the screen surface as protrusions.
Supposedly, the technology also lets you send messages to other people, but I cannot conceive how the sense of smell is captured and sent. No clue on when or where we will see this actually come into effect.
People have been talking about holograms for quite some time, but the ability to capture and hold a particular smell is still a foreign concept. It certainly is interesting though, I’ll admit that.
