We’re combining our most primal sense with today's most promising technology.
Why scent is the answer.
Smell is our most primal sense and our most direct link to our brain’s memory and emotion center. Virtual Reality is one of the most promising technologies with the power to change the way we interact with the world around us and with each other. What if we could combine the power of both and use them to do something great like capture memories, make meaningful connections, and possibly even save lives?
At OVR Technology we strive to realize this vision. By combining our oldest, most primal sense with today’s most promising technology we can create a virtual world that is just as rich, complex and authentic as our own. Smell may be our oldest, most misunderstood, and most undervalued sense, but it holds the key to a better future.
“When you’re fully immersed in a virtual environment, it’s like a ‘brain hack’ — you can’t be engaged in anything else."
- Dr. Larry Benz (NY Times, April 29, 2019)
“Engaging our Olfactory sense makes our virtual interactions as rich, meaningful and authentic as our real ones”
-Aaron Wisniewski (TEDx)
"VR isn't just a technology; it's a conduit of connection.”
