Remni scentIntroducing RemniScent™ at VRLA 2017

“Smells are mood-altering and entirely legal, not fattening and often free. These analyses imply that we should pay far more attention to odors, and in so doing gain a little more control over our sentient lives, and live a little more pleasurable.”  – Anthony Synnott in The Compendium of Olfactory Research

We introduced the newest version of the scent device for VR at this Spring’s VRLA expo.

RemniScent is unique in that it uses a molecular drift technique that does not spray dangerous chemicals at the wearer. It is controlled from within the VR experience via BlueTooth signals that communicate with the circuit boards on the collar. The scent modules are removable, easy to clean and easy to replace from a library of scent packages you can replace easily.
