Today we talk, text, record videos, take pictures, and even edit them all on our smart devices. But what’s next? A new era of multi-sensory digital communications!

Imagine just receiving a beautiful bouquet. Instead of sending a picture of the flowers, why not send the smell?
Scentee, the app developed with a partner in Japan, has over 100 different scents and can also be used as an alarm clock which then wakes you up gently with the smell of fresh coffee. You can even use it while you’re on a diet so your steamed vegetables can be complemented by the scent of beef to give you the impression that you’re eating meat.
With the constant evolution of digital technologies, it seems like we have seen and heard everything. So what else can we expect in the future? Apparently, feeling the touch of our loved ones, and perhaps even virtually sharing a strawberry milkshake!
How do you feel about a future like this and do you think this can replace face-to-face interaction?
