Perfume-puffing robot sniffs out social media mentions

Meet Olly and Polly - two bots bringing the digital into the physical world. 

Olly is the web-connected smelly robot and will gently puff out your favourite scent whenever you get a mention, notification or comment on a post online.

Polly turns your retweets into sweets. Link Polly to your twitter account and she’ll start counting your retweets. Once she reaches the amount you have set, she’ll give you a sweet.
