About OVR Technology:

OVR Technology combines our oldest, most primal sense with today’s most powerful technology to address urgent human needs. Our unique platform marries our sense of smell with Virtual and Augmented Reality to help produce real-world outcomes in the health, therapy, training, education, and military markets. The platform consists of 3 interconnected solutions: the Software Framework, the Hardware, and the Scentware. Architecture of Scent is a mixture of art, science, and technology that precisely replicate realistic olfactory experiences for the digital world.

We are: sensory scientists, technologists, programmers, artists, and entrepreneurs. We value: social and environmental causes, research, collaboration, futurism, human life, mental and physical health. Our passion and talent enable us to create tools to impact these things. We are on track to become industry leaders in our niche and are looking for a valuable team member to add to our group of innovators.
