Increased Sensory Immersion
A new gadget intends to take your Virtual Reality gaming to the next level. It is called the Feelreal Sensory mask and it attaches to the front of your VR googles. All while simulating the smells of objects and environments you see on screen.
According to the company’s website, the device can simulate hundreds of scenes. Furthermore, it supports not just games but movies and other entertainment media as well.
It can apparently simulate lavender if you want to feel relaxed. In case you are playing a racing game, the Feelreal Sensory mask can apparently simulate burning tire smells as well. When playing a first-person shooter game, it can also simulate gunpowder odor.
Which VR Systems is the Feelreal Sensory Mask compatible with?
So far, only a few titles have official support for the device. This includes VR games like Skyrim VR, Beat Saber and Death Horizon. It is also compatible with YouTube VR.
How Much is the Feelreal Sensory Mask for Virtual Reality?
There is no word on pricing or release date for the device yet. However, the company website states that they will be running a Kickstarter campaign soon to fund the project.
