Engineering a new movement in wearable liquid scent dispensing - building resilience in a post-COVID-19 world:
eScent is a start-up in the wellness/healthcare/AI sector commercializing personalized wearable fragrance products for connected garments and enhanced PPE. We are developing a wearable platform technology that uses sensors and data to develop an actionable "scent bubble"; eScent's smart liquid dispenser interfaces with tracking devices and worn biometric sensors (in smartphones, smartwatches, etc.,) to deliver hyper-personalized scent experiences for improved wellbeing in the post-COVID-19 world.
Our wearable patent-pending AI-powered liquid dispenser is for use in smart garments, masks, textiles, jewellery, spectacles and AR/VR/MR headsets.
Inspired by science fiction concepts, NASA's Liquid Cooling Suits and biological actions from humans, animals, insects, and plants, eScent builds on 20+ years of award-winning research on "Smart Second Skin" and a Ph.D. in Textiles from the Royal College of Art (1997) The Wellness Collection - A Science Fashion Story
eScent creates an invisible, protective, personalized "bubble" that is localized around the halo of the head (or elsewhere on the body) using algorithmic technologies. This liquid sphere is diffused on-demand and triggered in real-time by contextual biodata or voice, creating a data-driven liquid dispense platform for a post-COVID world. Using advanced mathematics to establish and maintain the appropriate sized"bubble", eScent provides a more sustainable low-solvent perfumery solution; blending top, middle, and base notes together, depending on user-context or mood. Fragrances are diffused that are pertinent to the users' personal situation - creating a new personalized scent environment in a world where social distancing is becoming the norm.
Protected by a further four issued patents in Smart Textiles and Wearable Technology, eScent embeds discreetly into connected items, offering “personalized scent” as an automated-delivery intervention for mental distress or other health applications. It is a transformative technology that releases an appropriate “bio-synchronized” scent in response to different personal emotional or environmental triggers (e.g., hormonal excretions, temperature, voice, location, music, etc). eScent can help reduce trauma, enhance emotional and mental wellbeing, and mitigate against infection.
The eScent "bubble" technology acts as an adaptive "Smart Second Skin" with the capacity to truly disrupt and revolutionize multiple industries - ultimately creating a more sustainable, immersive, intelligent, and personalized scent experience for the Creative Industries (Fashion, Jewellery), Healthcare and Wellness Sectors, Space Exploration, Education and Entertainment.
