Radical Sensing: 3D wearable noses
Radical Sensing: 3D wearable noses
Through performative prototyping, 3D modeling, a speculative use case 
film, and physical computing - Radical Sensing raises questions about 
what it means to experience an enhanced sense of smell through a 
neuroprosthetic. Can the removal of a body part become aspirational? How
 does the ability to share scent impact “smell literacy”? What does 
“sensorial consensus” mean? How do we design for an ability to control 
or relinquish control of smell?

Radical Sensing imagines a future in which people have chosen to 
replace their noses with a “super smelling” neuroprosthetic or a 
“post-nose”. The neuroprosthetic amplifies, isolates and records scent 
with hand gestures and customizations to the “post-nose”.

We created a family of prototypes iteratively. Our first prototypes were
 analog. We rapidly prototyped, 3d printed nose-plugs with breathing 
holes attached to long straws. Then we began making variations on the 
nose plugs based on the findings. This includes two-person nose plugs, 
uni-nostril nose plugs. We also tested functioning prototypes including a
 nose mesh (a canvas for placing interactive microelectronics and 
sensors), and an open-closing nose prototype that reacted to the breath 
(using a servo + arduino microcontroller).

How do you design for a technology/ability that does not exist? This 
challenge led us to the idea of working with performers (specifically 
those with specialized movement or dance training). We started calling 
this process “performative prototyping”. Performative prototyping 
involves leading performers through improvised movement followed by a 
debriefing of the performers. Instead of narrowing, it is a divergent 
and generative process.

We conducted three scent tests with a group of diverse performers. We 
were interested in the relationship of language to smell. We asked the 
subjects to verbalize their reactions. We were delighted to see, not 
only whether the subjects were able to identify the scents, but also the
 range of memories and associations the smells triggered. The subjects 
unanimously expressed wanting to compare their understanding and 
experience of the scents. These tests led us to speculate, would an 
augmented nose prosthetic facilitate richer discourse of smell? Would 
this lead to smell literacy?
