Designer Hyun Choi wondered how telling time using senses other than sight and sound might affect our experience of time. To delve into the idea, he came up with the process of capturing and releasing smells using small capsules.

One could set the release of odors to correlate with events. One might wake to the smell of bacon and eggs, or go to sleep with the scent of jasmine. Instead of using numbers and the analytical part of the brain, this method is designed to make time a fully sensory experience.
