January 4, 2023
"OVR Technology, a provider of digital scent technology, has today announced at CES 2023 the launch of ION 3, the company’s first-of-its-kind wearable scent technology solution for consumers."
"Previously only available for enterprise customers, OVR’s new next-generation wearable will come with scent creation tools that will allow all creators – professional and amateur – to produce and share multi-sensory experiences.
ION 3 represents the first personal, wearable scent technology optimized for virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR), mobile, and desktop to enhance immersion and create more emotionally engaging, entertaining, and effective digital experiences.
The ION is a cartridge-based device that connects wirelessly via bluetooth to a smartphone, PC or VR/AR headset and allows the wearer to explore the world of 4D, multi-sensory experiences. The company’s ION Scentware cartridge works by combining primary aromas in different combinations to create thousands of unique, digitally native scents to provoke different moods and emotions.
OVR Technology noted that it already works with several partners to deliver impactful experiences in wellness, entertainment, brand/marketing, and social connectivity. The company added that it is excited to see what content creators of all types will make possible with its new scent technology. With the announcement of ION 3, any content creator can now communicate with ION 3 via Bluetooth technology, allowing anyone to enable their content with scent."
