Social media networking is going to be more fun as the researchers at University of Bristol has developed a technology that will make you more interactive and make your friends and closed one understand your feelings in more deeper way.
The researchers have developed an interactive technology called SensaBubble that sends out multi-sensory soap bubbles release a scent or carry images.
In a statement, lead researcher of the project Sriram Subramanian said, “The human sense of smell is powerful but there are few research systems that explore and examine ways to use it. We have taken the first steps to explore how smell can be used to enhance and last longer in a visual object such as a soap bubble.”
Subramanian is a professor in the university’s computer science department.
The big development was presented at a press conference this week.
Elaborating upon the bubbles, the University of Bristol team members said that the bubbles are so interactive that they can be tailored to specific sizes and directed mid-air while carrying images.
SensaBubble may be launched very soon by major networking sites including Facebook, Twitter and others.
According to the researchers, SensaBubble could be the next stage of interactive technology. It has potential for education, advertising, notification alerts and more.
“There are many areas in which bubble-based technology like SensaBubble could be applied, such as a SensaBubble clock that releases the number of scented bubbles corresponding to the hour or SensaBubble Maths, an educational game for children, which incorporates smell as feedback on their success,” Subramanian said in the press release.
