Hmm, that smell of cookies coming out of the oven, fresh cut grass, or flowers in the garden. These are the smells that remind you vividly of specific memories relating to people you love.

Our creative project is one for family members to establish connection times between each other as well as create an olfactory signal. This device uses a scent to signal that the person on the other end is missing you, reminding you that you should probably call your mom and tell her you love her. It also has LEDs on the device to signal if the person is available or busy. A big problem from international families is that the time zones are so spread out, there is a small gap to connect with your loved ones without knowing exactly when they are available. Having these interactions be olfactory and at a glance gives you a sense of closeness to the other person and lets you know that they are thinking about you.
