The British Science museum is exploring electronic noses, artificial retinas, and other artificial senses in an interactive exhibit lasting until 11 Oct 2007.

The series, supported by the Royal Academy of Engineering, explores how advances in engineering are revolutionising sensory experience of hearing, smelling, touching and tasting and helping people with impaired senses to see.

Visitors to the Dana Centre can explore sensory perception and virtual reality hands-on with some of the latest developments in neurobionics, haptic technology and micro-engineering.
