Baubles are fun. It’s a great way to add personality to your wardrobe. Whether you’re into studs or pearls, jewelry adds that tiny bit of distinction and personalization that makes any outfit your very own.
But what else can diamonds do beyond make you feel and look glamorous? What happens when your wedding ring can sense your pulse, your pendant your posture, and your watch your stress levels?
Our jewelry and accessories begin to take on new, unexpected roles.
PosturAroma, a project developed by students Akarsh Sanghi, Shinichiro Ito, and Laura Mul from Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, explores the enhanced poetic functionality of future high-tech jewelry.
PosturAroma is positioned as “safety” and “confidence building” wearable. It essentially aims to monitor posture and release a variety of scents to modify one’s behavior. Scent here is being used as the emotional trigger for behavior change.
