 Smelling Screen: Generating Spatial Odor Distribution as if an Odor Source Had Been Placed onto an LCD Monitor Screen

The smelling screen is an olfactory display system that generates a localized odor distribution in front of an LCD monitor screen. The odor distribution is as if an odor source had been placed onto the screen, which leads the user to perceive the odor as emanating from a specific region of the screen. You can experience realistic changes in the intensity of a peach smell when you move your head to sniff at various locations on the screen.

Aroma shooter, which employs a gas ejection method, has much less lingering scent than systems applying liquid spray methods. Furthermore, by pinpointing the face with directional scent, it can instantaneously switch the aroma to be synchronized with video and sound.
