With Sensory Acumen Charlene Coleman is determined to move gaming into a new dimension. Unveiled at this year’s Game Developer’s Conference, but not yet available for sale, GameSkunk is a console attachment which emits scents corresponding to the player’s experience. A drag race that isn’t going so well would trigger the smell of burnt rubber, a basketball playoff would be a sweaty affair, etc. It’s not all fun in games, however. Therapeutic uses of the technology are also in the works. Conditions where scent recognition is lost or stirs negative emotions, such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, stroke or Alzheimer’s, could incorporate GameSkunk into the treatment.
