This thing you’re looking at is Feelreal Multisensory Mask. It’s compatible with all the popular VR headsets and it adds smell and touch to virtual reality. Yeah, future is here already!

You will smell VR flowers or gunpowder thanks to it’s reliable scent generator that holds an easily replaceable cartridge, containing 9 individual aroma capsules. You can choose aromas for each game or video from our collection of 255 safe and natural scented liquids.

With Feelreal Mask you can also feel mist or rain on your cheeks, experience punches and crashes with vibration feature and get real wind in your face when it blows in a game or video.

We’re going on Kickstarter soon, subscribe at http://www.feelreal.com/ to get all the news first. Early backers will get a huge discount!

    Nice idea! But will it be popular?

    Do you have some "smell brightness" setting? So you could change the amount or intensity of smell?
    So if I do not like to smell burning rubber too much, could I change the "smell brightness" to lower value just a little tint or duration to a half of a second?

    Will VRchat be supported? You could sell them masks even if they had no headsets :lol:
    And I know the smell they will use most! :lol:

    Is it possible to record stream of smells and feelings from a game with video streaming? And then post cut scenes on YouTube :)

    Will there be photo gallery with smell support? (is there "sea smell", "pizza smell", "bar smell"?) :smiley:

    Could you make a sample game "guess a smell combination" for parties? ;)

    ps. Is it possible to get "great vine smell" while drinking cheap one?
    :lol:

    Wish you the best of luck.

    Would it depend on every software developer integrating every item in their game with your hardware? Otherwise how would it know what a flower was or when the wind was blowing?

    Do you intend to incorporate this in the unreal engine and unity?

    It reminds me of the old CGA days. You could use 2 or 4 of the 16.7 million colors available today.

    Got to start somewhere I suppose. Count me in when it gets to the smell equivalent of VGA. ;)

     Don't think I'm quite ready for Smell-o-vision but good luck with your endeavors

    This could be pretty interesting if a few games devs support its use within their games.

    Duration and intensity of the smells in games will be set by developers, when they create a FeelReal profile for their product. Our smell distribution system is the same that's used in vaping devices. It vaporizes micro amounts of scented liquids right under user's nose, so in fact it can't be too intense. When using Feelreal mask for the first time, you will be able to adjust it to your personal sensitivity to smells.

    By now we still haven't communicated with VRChat developers XD

    You gave us an interesting idea about adding Feelreal support to gaming streams, we will definitely think about it! And a "guess a smell" game is nice idea too!

    Feelreal Aroma Library contains more than 200 aromas, and there is sea smell and pizza smell, and several options of alcohol and bar snacks  ;)

    Yes, we have SDK for Unity and Unreal for game developers. Any developer can add Feelreal support to their game, and it will be added to existing games as a patch. 

    Are you asking as a dev or as a gamer?

    And, thanks  :)

    Now we have 255 smells in our library, and we will be adding more. I hope sometime a real Ready Player One suit will be possible, and Feelreal Mask will be a part of it.

    Right now it's already supported by Beat Saber, Skyrim VR and more. Check all the games here - https://feelreal.com/#titles. And more titles are coming!

    What is the most unusual smell do you have?
    Is there any smell that one have no chance to feel in real life?

    Have you any branded/advert smell? You could talk to Nescafe and make an advertisement application with real coffee smell they made!
    :lol:

    And a "guess a smell" game is nice idea too!
    You could play it even without VR with smartphone integration.

    BTW when you placing new cartridge need you change software settings or it will auto detect smells? So could you select random smells with eyes closed and do not know which 9 of them there in?
    :smiley:

    Well, "unusual" is not the same for everyone, so I can't tell you exactly which one. For example, we have a Barn smell, Dragon smell and many more. I think that Dragon or Zombie smell would count as one that's impossible to feel in real life, since zombies and dragons don't exist. 

    We have a mobile app for aromatherapy and meditation which allows to use Feelreal mask without any VR headset, so your idea is also fine for that.

    I play Elite so I doubt there's much to smell in Space. PokerstarsVR perhaps because I do fart a lot hehe!

    Alextended I'm afraid this kind of actions won't be possible with Feelreal Mask. But you will be able to smell something pleasant to lift up your mood!

    How are you integrating with Skyrim? what smells are active? For example if I pick up some food does it smell? If you approached a horse would it smell? There are so many objects in Skyrim.

    If I got down on my knees would I smell the grass?

    Also the wind in Skyrim is that an actual measurable thing or do you just simulate breezes. IE the higher you go the stronger the wind (at the top of a mountain etc).

    In Skyrim VR we have created a scent profile for every region of the game world. Feelreal Mask has 9 aroma capsules in it, so you will be able to smell 9 objects or locations in every region. So, yeah you will have to change capsules from time to time, albeit not often. We tested this with one set yet we'll add more before release.

    As for the wind - yes, our micro coolers can change the intensity of the wind in different areas and situations.
