Designing Interactive Olfactory Experience in Real Context and Applications

​TEI Studio 2019

About this Studio

In this studio, we guide you through the design approach of integrating interactive olfactory experience with real contexts and applications. Based on two case studies in family setting and commercial environments, we will share our design processes and lessons.

 

During the studio, prototype demo and a toolkit will be introduced. Participants will sketch interactions using provided toolkit and prototyping materials. The purpose is to think through the realistic scenarios and the challenges of integrating the experience with actual interactions in the participants’ areas. We will create potential new areas of contexts and application areas through toolkit and interaction design methods. 

The aim of this studio is to establish a community in discussion of a new perspective in designing and evaluating interactive olfactory experience in real contexts and applications.
