Concept machine, ‘food printer’ proposes printing cards that are scented with local food by using an aroma sensor to mix aroma inks stored on the machine.

Ever wanted to sniff your foodie friends’ photos? Well one student in China has a concept to capture the aroma of food on a postcard. The ‘food printer’ would use a camera to take the picture and a smell extractor to collect the aroma simultaneously, then prints a postcard with aroma ink. Zhu Jingxuan, an industrial design student at the Fashion & Art Design Institute of Donghua University, drew the sketch and made the model device with the help of Sony’s Student Design Workshop.  Jingxuan’s food printer concept won the “most-fun” award during the workshop. Jingxuan was one of six students to win awards and the winners worked with designers in Sony China Creative Center in Shanghai to turn their ideas into reality. He comments on the experience:

 We worked with 10 Sony designers for nine days and nights. We discussed everything about our designs in a very detailed way. They were hard days but happy days.
