David Edwards, founder of art and design center Le Laboratoire and a professor in Biomedical Engineering at Harvard University, and his students designed a Bluetooth-enabled device that sends coffee scented messages from a mobile device.

The idea of the OPHONE is that sending friends a “hit” of caffeine or coffee is as easy as sending a text message from your phone.

The OPHONE was designed by Edwards and his students Rachel Field and Amy Yin, and was developed with help from Le Laboratoire, The Wyss Institute at Harvard, and Studio Millimetre designers Baptiste Viala and Laurent Milon.

The video below shows Edwards demonstrating how the OPHONE works.
