"Touch and smell take the spotlight for Metaverse experiences at CES 2023"
Metaverse and VR-focused companies were all the hype at the consumer electronic show CES 2023 held in Vegas this year.
US-based OVR Technology stole the show, introducing OVR ION 3, a digital scent wearable that can be optimized for VR headsets and other digital devices.
The wearable contains a cartridge with eight primary aromas that can be combined to create different scents, scheduled to be released later this year.
Another VR headset that turned heads is the HTC Vive XR Elite, which is set to take on the big players such as Meta Quest Pro and Apple’s much-awaited headset.
This headset has a dedicated depth sensor on the front, along with colour passthrough cameras that can eventually show mixed reality experiences, similar to the Quest Pro."
