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.
“Virtual scent is in many ways the new frontier. Olfaction is such a powerful cue for presence, as well as for priming memories."
- Dr. Jeremy Bailenson, Virtual Human Interaction Lab at Stanford University
"The application of OVR’s technology to readiness activities is revolutionary and serves to enhance the realism of training environments and end-states."
- Andy Vonada, President and CEO of JB Management.
“The perfect team for us to partner with and I think [Bravemind] is an ideal application to really put their system through its paces. I think it’s going to make the therapy much better for the wider masses that this is applied to.”
- Dr. Albert "Skip" Rizzo, University of Southern California
"Olfactory virtual reality is one of the greatest storytelling tools that has ever been invented.”
- Daniel Stricker, DP Immersive and Award-winning artist
“One of the final pieces of the puzzle to full immersion, scent is a really primal experience and it gives us a lot of spatial cues and other tools for navigating the world.”
