The Hidden Power of Scent

Directly connected to the memory and emotion centers of our brain

Our sense of smell is unique from our other senses. It's the only sense with a direct connection to the limbic system in our brains which is the area responsible for memory and emotion. The Limbic System also has a major influence on cognition, behavior and motivation. Watch co-founder Aaron Wisniewski talk about the power of scent on the TED stage.

Wireless Digital Scent

For anyone who wants the most immersive, premium, digital experiences

The ION connects wirelessly via bluetooth to your Smartphone, PC, or VR headset so you can explore the world of 4D, multi-sensory experiences. It can be attached to other hardware like VR headsets, headphones, and mobile devices or be placed in a stationary location near the user.

Multi Platform

The possibilities go beyond just mobile.

The plugins allow content to exist on many platforms and communicate wirelessly with the OVR device. ION comes with a mobile app so you can start experiencing and creating scent content. But the ION is also compatible with content on Virtual Reality, AR, PC, Desktop, and other devices. We partner with games studios, publishers, and content creators to enable more experiences to be not only multisensory, but include spatial and action based cues.

Cartridge Based

A replaceable Scentware® cartridge designed to integrate with content to create more impactful experiences

The ION Scentware is designed to create digitally native scents to provoke different moods and emotions. OVR isn't designed to exactly replicate the physical world but rather give you a whole new world of possibilities.

Everyone Is a Creator with OVR

Introducing the OVR Scent Studio

Every ION includes a free download of the OVR Scent Studio which allows you to create your own digital aromas from scratch and combine them with other media like video and audio. When you’re done creating you can save for later, share with friends, or post it on the OVR community feed for others to experience. The more creators, the more variety you can experience.
