OnPoint Digital and TriSenx, Inc., a product design company
specializing in "olfactory diffusion", have partnered to produce
SenzWare, an end-to-end training solution that incorporates a
third human sense -- smell -- as a component of an online training
program. TriSenx's revolutionary device called the Scent Dome™
connects to a PC and can diffuse a scent on demand from an
OnPoint online course or test.
The solution represents a low cost, high impact learning tool
that organizations can use to expand their current online
curriculum -- to include the use of odorants and aromas
where appropriate to better train their workforce and
strengthen the learning process.
To date, online learning has been limited to just two of
the five sensory channels - sight and sound. But the
senses of smell, taste and touch can also play an
important role in learning, both in the creative and
interactive learning benefits in the K-12 sector, as
well as a breadth of real world benefits spanning
the medical, industrial, safety, and military markets.
