The first time in history, capturing the scent of homemade cookies, exotic flowers, or your best-ever vacation by the sea is planned to bring in daily life use!  Scent Camera is a mobile device to record, store, and release scents. It will allow us to collect and preserve the scents that bring back sensations and memories. Latvian entrepreneurs have engaged with scientists and engineers from Latvian University and Riga Technical University to create an unprecedented device for users.

Scent Camera CEO Sandris Murins: Each of our senses has developed a mass medium throughout history. We can look at how photo cameras have developed in the last 100 years – from exclusively distinct professional use machinery to one-click option in our mobile phones. Our option for the scents has remained as it was centuries ago. There are still available only premade fragrances or requiring explicit skills and devices. We have a vision that significant scents are as easy to capture as take a picture or shoot a video.

Sense of smell is recognized as one of the most potent emotional senses (Harvard Gazette), now ready for its mass medium. In the initial survey, 72% of respondents shared to have had experienced the scent they would like to preserve.

Scent Camera’s technology is based on headspace gas chromatography technology used to store scent for scientific purposes. In the future Scent Camera, it is planned to allow you not only to record, store and release, but also recreate and re-produce the loved scents!  So you will be able to share and make your own collections of personally significant scents.

Sandris Murins (CEO), Marcis Sejejs (CTO), and Sanda Lapinska (COO) have joined forces with Riga Technical University Design Factory and  Latvian University teams on the initial working prototype creation. Scent camera technology has been submitted for patent. The Investment and Development Agency of Latvia co-financed the project.

The project is in the process of funding the product design and marketing. Investors and scent world lovers who want to be a part of making the first-ever Scent Camera are welcomed to join!
