This weeks reading in Experience Design talked about incorporating the 5 senses into your design. There have been many attempts in creating smell and taste into designs but they are basically unsuccessful. Some food websites create good descriptions and pictures of food, which is the closest thing there is to taste. If a design could incorporate the 5 senses of taste, smell, touch seeing and hearing into a website it would be incredible. Those aspects come in the future or may never be able to be incorporated into computer designs.

Since we can add sound into an experience, there are varieties of ways it can be integrated into the experience whether is be voice, music, sound effects, or other forms of communication. The majority of our understanding comes from hearing so it is important to use these in an experience to make it more memorable.
