The USB P@ d is a personal aroma diffuser that connects to the computer's USB port to create a "personal multi-sensorial area" around your workspace and provide relief from the olfactory issues that often become an issue in office environments during high-summer. The device allows you to pre-program diffusion cycles as well as controlling screen-savers and sound effects for the complete multimedia sensory workout.

Several USB P@ d devices can be linked via a Hub to provide various odours and the system can also be integrated into professional software packages. This makes it possible to incorporate pleasant odours into a Power Point presentation or digital video sequence.

The CD Rom included in the package also contains information on related subjects such as the production and benefits of essential oils, notably Lavender and Ylang Ylang.

The USB P@ d can be purchased online at
