Small Smell / Smelly Earphone

Small Smell
Small Smell

We got interested in functions of smell that sense of smell do to us, and tried adding a joy of smelling to a smart phone and earphones which modern people carry around with them always. This will bring a refreshing joy to our lives as we were depending mostly on seeing and hearing. Via application, we joined smart phone and earphone,then we designed smell earphone. We always carry around, work together with our product in our daily lives. This earphone works on four scent cartridges. You can choose scent cartridges as you like and mix them, so you can smell as your tastes when you want!
