FeelReal allows players to smell in Virtual Reality

Virtual reality (VR) aims to push the boundaries of immersion. Instead of an outsider looking in, VR intends to place players in the centre of the action using head-mounted displays (HMD) like the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive. However, a new device aims to take this further by adding a sense of smell into the mix with the FeelReal mask. The device is compatible with an array of VR HMDs.

The device has an array of features which apply to the in-game conditions. It gives the player the ability to apply olfactory senses to increase the sense of immersion. FeelReel can replicate the smell of different locations. It will release with 4 set smell types including jungle, ocean, wind and fire.

Along with this, it can also generate the sensation of wind in the users face. With this also comes with temperature adjustments to help cope with the sensation. In-built is a system which can disperse water mist, giving the sensation of getting wet. Also it includes a vibrate mode similar to a controller would.

The device is set to release at a price of $249.99 USD and is available to pre-order now via the website. VRFocus will keep you updated on the latest VR devices.

  1. Its great ideia of egin very imersive,but some times i think it need to go more slow,we need first to adapt to vr them it comes…like me i was using cardboard vr but had a problem with much light so my mother think it was cellphone radiation then now i cant use it because she blame it…its hard to much people acept,so something like this is incredible much incredible but need to go slow with people adapting to it. well its not all my opinion but what i can see,the people at eurogamer yesterday was saying VR dont go much further,but ofcouse VR will and is going but some people dont like.
    I really had this ideia of smells but of course i am not an engineer so i cant do much things…but its amazing and surreal see it already now exist. if i could i buy to experiment….i imagine how it is..hhahaha^^
