Abstract

Information that can be gained using smell, one of the five senses, has a deep connection with memory and affect; therefore, presentation of scents with videos has an effect that enhances realistic sensations. In current videos with scents, it is often the case that a great deal of scent is emitted at the same time in one scene, and there is no change of scent in subsequent scenes. In this study, we researched how humans react when the scent switches between video scenes. We focused especially on how visual information affects the reaction speed. Through this experiment, we found that reaction time was shorter when the scent changed after converting scenes. In addition, we found that the content of the videos did not have an effect on the reaction times. Therefore, when adding scents, it is best to switch the scent after the scene changes. We hope that this finding about responses toward scent changes assists in designing presentations that use scents.
