A vibrating dance floor and "aroma jockeys" spreading scents are set to bring a new kind of disco experience to London that can be enjoyed by deaf as well as hearing clubbers. [...] The vibrating dance floor responds to the bass frequency of the music. Sign dancers visually interpret the tracks and Signmark, a deaf Finnish rapper, will perform. Video jockeys and DJs will be joined by the aroma jockeys who will aim to convert the emotion of the music into smells.

That is so damn cool.
LOL…I am old. Just the words ‘disco experience’ were enough to talk me out of the whole thing. Please, you go and report back
Ha! I have a friend who does a lot of work with people who have multiple disabilities, so I’m always on the lookout for this kind of work. I think she’ll love hearing about this.
I just hope they have one hell of a ventilation system. That could get unpleasant quickly, particularly once you add in the smells from the bar and a night full of dancing in a packed club.
