What if I told you that 2+2=Red!?!? What!?! I know this sounds crazy but for people with synesthesia this might be their reality. Synesthesia is defined as “the production of a sense impression relating to one sense or part of the body by stimulation of another sense or part of the body.” This is a complicated way of saying that people with synesthesia have blended senses. The most common type of synesthesia is called grapheme, in which numbers and letters are intuitively linked with color. So 2+2=4 but a red 4. There are a myriad of other types of synesthesia which you can read about here, but in this Instructable we are going to be designing a mask that links our sense of color with our sense of smell. Get ready to experience the world in a totally new way!

RGB Color Sensor with IR filter and White LED – TCS34725: Your electronics can now see in dazzling color with this lovely color light sensor. We found the best color sensor on the market, the TCS34725, which has RGB and Clear light sensing elements. An IR blocking filter, integrated on-chip and localized to the color sensing photodiodes, minimizes the IR spectral component of the incoming light and allows color measurements to be made accurately.
