All our communication over the internet today happens over two senses – audio and visual – but what if we could also smell, touch and taste through our devices? That is the future Professor of Pervasive Computing Adrian David Cheok is working towards in his research. We ask Adrian about the science behind his research as well as the social, cultural and psychological implications of having virtual experiences as good as the real ones.
Professor Adrian David Cheok will be delivering a talk titled “Everywhere, Everysense Communication” at the TEDxKL conference this Saturday, August 8th, at the Indoor Putra Stadium, Bukit Jalil.
