Senti8 is a bracelet that lets wearers remember scents of places they have visited.
Developed by a team of eight led by videographer and hackathon enthusiast Leslie Birch, Senti8 is a personal scent band that lets astronauts relive the favorite scents they miss.
According to the write-up on the project website, smells on earth are some of the things that astronauts miss the most.
