Due to Climate Change the sea level could rise dramatically. When it

Inspired by virtual reality exposition therapy we developed 3 objects
extending the room in a visual, an acoustic and an olfactoric way.
Goggles with wide angle lenses stretch the visual space of the room.
A combination of earplugs and a microphone extend the acoustic space

The last device changes the olfactoric perception of the room. A tube
connected to the user’s nose allows him to sniff at a chosen capsule
filled with odoriphores triggering memories of wide spaces.
