Scent Reminder

Current datebook programs such as Palm Desktop or Microsoft Outlook will give you a single audiovisual reminder a set period of time before your appointment is due. We are exploring the use of smell to convey information about upcoming events. Scent Reminder is an addition to Microsoft Outlook's Calendar program. When you make the appointment, it releases your chosen scent to help connect the stimulus with the event, and then releases the scent at the appropriate time to remind you. We have also started to explore gradually releasing more of a scent, or combinations of scents, over time.
