Jenny Tillotson, a British designer has come up with the concept of a wardrobe called 'Smart Second Skin' apparel that helps to manipulate our emotions. The apparel gives the person a fully controllable 'scent bubble' activated by a high-tech clothing.

This technology calls for a system of 'micro pumps' and 'micro tubes' that work together to produce fragrances that are pulsed electronically, giving the wearer a suitable olfactory aura.

The most basic form of this technology would generate simple aromatherapy to enhance mood but Tillotson tells Innovation News Daily that the system can be used in a more sophisticated way as a regulator, reports the Discovery News.

If the clothing is combined with biometrics that measure stress indicators, then soothing or calming scents could be released whenever the stress levels exceeded a certain threshold.

Similarly, refreshing or alerting scents can be used to fight drowsiness.

Perhaps more significantly, because of the strong relationship between memory and the sense of smell, the technology may one day be used to stimulate the brains of Alzheimer's patients in a futuristic version of Reminiscence Therapy.
