Small pic senses

Imagine you leave New York  City in January and fly to Miami. As you drive into the city, the breeze carries the salty scent of ocean air into your open window. The warm setting sun paints the horizon pink and orange against the rows of palm trees. In the city, you follow your nose to a food truck by a park, where you eat an arepa and listen to a conga band. If only you could share the full experience with your friends in cold, grey New York!

Now imagine a future where it is possible to fully send any experience from person to person over vast distances. You no longer need to be in the same place at the same time to convey full sensory experiences (smell, taste, feel, et cetera). The question becomes: what exactly would you want to send, if you can?


Tell us what sensory experiences you want to send from person to person. Specifically:

  1. Describe, in detail, the types of experiences you would want send or receive from person to person.
  2. Give us an idea of how, hypothetically, such experiences may be conveyed in the future.
  3. What kind of technology--such as 4G, 5G, 6G systems or something completely new--would be needed?
    Submissions will be graded on the following criteria:
