Certain scents have the power to bring back vivid memories. Based on this premise, Smell a Memory personalized fragrance kits now aim to act as memory prompts for Alzheimer’s and dementia sufferers.

James commented on Revolution Foods

Hi Sergio,

Great to see diet addressed - it's such a huge topic in itself that there could probably be a whole separate challenge dedicated to it! These guys obviously realize how important it is. I've heard from Teachers I know that often the problem begins at home, and its tricky to tip-toe around parents that force bad diets on their children.

Interestingly, one of the more successful approaches to brining around Parents to the importance of healthy eating has been to explain and educate on the affects different foot types have on a child's ability to concentrate and take in what he's learning, rather than whether it makes him or her 'fat' or unhealthy. This approach seems to sidestep self-image issues somewhat and help keep parents onside. Would love to hear more on how Revolution Foods communicate the message to parents as well as kids.

Cheers!

Hi Priyanka.. love the simplicity of this idea. I wonder if a small layer of technology might compliment it? A couple of years ago on a similar challenge, I read about a concept involving RFID tags called 'Smart Bins'... Here is a link... hope it might provide some inspiration for tangential developments!
