Abstract

This poster presents an approach to enhance remote multisensory interactions through digital taste (gustation) and smell (olfaction) senses on human. This approach mainly facilitates the digital actuation of taste and smell sensations on human. It utilizes electrical, thermal, and magnetic stimulation technologies to stimulate taste and smell sensations digitally. First, we present the initial prototype for digital taste actuation and then discuss the method for digital smell actuation.
