Development of Scent Technology<br />I am mainly focusing on how the idea of ”Smell-0-Vision” developed with the movie industry with this chronological but also add other significant developments.<br />*A<br />
1916<br />Rose scents emitted during silent movie at theater in Pennsylvannia.*1<br />*1b<br />
1940<br />“With a colleague, Robert Barth, Laubeproduced a 35-minute “smell-o-drama” movie, "Mein Traum" — in English, "My Dream" — <br />for the 1940 World’s Fair in New York.<br />*2b<br />The projectionist operated a control board with dials that allowed him to release 32 different odors, including roses, coconut, tar, hay and peaches.”*.*2<br />Courtesy of the George C. Marshall Foundation, Lexington, Virginia<br />
1960<br />“Scent of Mystery” *3movie, actually starring the late Elizabeth Taylor, incorporated various scents such as the smell of a “pipe”.* 1 The producer, Mike Todd, Jr. said "I hope it's the kind of picture they call a scentsation” *1However, this idea of using “”Smell-o-Vision”*4 never really took off” .*4.<br />
1999<br />““DigiScents” founded and introduced “ iSmell” device for transmitting aromas. * 5<br />*5b<br />
2000<br />“AromaJet.com announces Fragrance Synthesis Over the Internet” This company mainly was interfacing with perfume manufacturers. *6<br />*6b<br />
2004<br />“The Internet Comes to Its Senses” <br />title of article on technology blog*7 “<br />Cable company Telewest Broadband is currently testing new technology that brings a third sense to the internet, allowing you to send and receive any number of weird and wonderful aromas whilst surfing the net.”*7<br />I cannot find anything further on this technology and learned through Wikipedia that the company was bought out by another one* 8<br />*8b<br />
2004<br />Linda Buck and Dr. Richard Axel awarded Nobel Peace Prize for “groundbreaking paper that shed light on olfactory receptors and how the brain interprets smell. *9<br /> “Odor Barcode”<br />…”the combined diversity of the receptors themselves and the molecular features they capture generate a huge breadth of signals fed into the brain which form a unique odour "fingerprint" by which mammalian brains recognise at least 10,000 individual odour molecules…."It gave rise to the combinatorial odour code, a bit like a supermarket barcode unique to each item,”. *9 <br />This could pave the way for digital scents.<br />*9b<br />
2006<br />“NTT Com offers Fragrance Communication system to incorporate scent emissions*10 into movie <br />“ The New World” <br />starring actor Colin Farrell*11.<br />
2011<br />ScentSciences Corporation <br />introduces “ScentScape™ <br />and<br />ScentScape™ Software Developers Kit (SDK) *12<br />“ScentScape™ is an innovative digital scent delivery system which provides the extra dimension of scent to gaming, entertainment and other consumer markets.
