Scent-Capturing Postcard Printer by Li Jingxuan for Sony

China-based designer Li Jingxuan has conceived a printer that creates scented postcards.  The ‘nose’ uses a sensor that uses pattern recognition to characterize odors.  From there the printer looks to simulate these odors by using a combination of aroma based inks as it prints onto a special photo-paper.  Then you peel back a flap and smell it.  And like that we have interactive postcards…how will this translate depending on the pictures we take?  Hit the jump for more pics.
