Why the workplace wasn’t working for her? Or, another way of putting it? Perhaps she feels like she just doesn’t own the room. So please meet Puppi. Users first fill puppy with their pheromone, or their favorite perfume, and then, well, they let it go!
Puppi is a robotic interface that intermittently spreads a woman’s scent in a space—marking her territory—so that she feels like she owns the room.
