A student in China has developed a concept device that captures the aroma of a meal on a postcard using a camera, printer and “smell extractor” as part of a Sony design competition.
Zhu Jingxuan, who is studying at the “Fashion & Art Design Institute” at China’s Donghua University, is the brain behind this food printer.
Utilizing an aroma sensor at the top of this device, it analyzes the aroma coming out from the food and simulates it using aroma inks which then stored inside the machine.
Once it achieves the similar formula, it prints onto the surface of the postcard.
Based on The China Daily, Aroma printer has won “most fun” award in Sony Student Design Workshop 2012, we can see the reasons for that.
