23 Examples of Multi-Sensory Technology

From Odor-Emitting Televisions to Morphing Mobile Phones

— August 12, 2014 — Tech
This collection of multi-sensory technology highlights some of the exciting developments happening in this industry. As devices and gadgets become more of a way of life, it is only natural that they will be capable of quite a bit. By addressing multiple senses, experiences are elevated ten-fold for the average person. Such multi-sensory technology can also benefit injured individuals who suffer from the lack of one or more senses.

Whether used for recreational purposes or more serious applications, these examples of multi-sensory technology show how taste, smell, touch, sight and sound can be manipulated through such innovations. Imagine watching television and smelling the scenes, not just seeing or hearing them. Fashion is even adopting multi-sensory technology in order to display different moods while becoming wearable art.
