Gamification of Sensory Analysis

Faire: Rome
Maker: Simply SFA
To define the sensory profile of a product according to UNI/ISO standards, the test must be carried out in sensory booths; "white rooms" where it is tested in ideal conditions. ISO booths are not easy to find, so we decided to make them portable: the Sensorial Stations. These can be of various types: • ISO Mode a sensory booth • Desk Mode a sensory desk • MiniSens which transforms any desk into an ISO station But our aim is to highlight how the tasting of products changes according to the conditions in which it takes place. This is why we want to train and challenge the senses of consumers to recognize the characteristics of the products in any environment.
