Camera to Capture Smell

Camera to Capture Smell

To deeply understand the sense of smell, a camera has been produced which will capture the smell and will recreate the scents.

Yes, the above invention has been done by an artist Ms. Amy Radcliffe, who has designed a device to capture the smell. Every smell has something attached to it, which can take any person familiar with it back to that particular moment in time instantly.

The explanations about the new device are coming from its creator. While talking to NBC News about her recent invention, she said 'It's so powerful and can seem to bypass all consciousness to trigger an emotional reaction.'

It is after realizing that people generally overlook the sense of 'smell' that Amy has created her new Madeleine camera. The camera basically works with the help of a bell which is placed over the object or the area that has to be recorded.

She explains that the camera passes the air inside to a reactive chemical which further captures the 'volatiles' and the bits of material and floating particles that make up a smell.

This composition can be then reproduced in a lab to further return the scent produced to the customer like any print.
