"On a mission to unpack the various aspects of well-being, OVR Technology has merged the worlds of virtual reality and olfactory to create the Architecture of Scent (AOS). Assembling a team of researchers, practitioners and technologists, AOS is designed to use scent to stimulate and access memory to transform cognition, emotion and behavioral responses."
The ION3 patented microtechnology doesn’t use heating elements or fans, to achieve the precise "nano bursts" of scent that are then cleared to allow for the next scent without odor build-up. The reusable scent cartridge can be used to create multiple combinations and variations with the eight base scents.
"A patented software plugin is said to understand user behavior in the virtual world and send real-time wireless signals to hardware components for activation. It works with all digital content developed in Unity or Unreal. The interface mimics audio components so virtually zero up-skill is needed."
