Virtual Reality should bring us into a completely new world. Even though themes like movement and contact with some gadgets are already possible, the olfactory component was still missing. With Feelreal VR an extension for VR headsets appears, which now also enables Virtual Reality users to smell the virtual world.

The VR face mask not only simulates smell, but also touches. Up to ten odours are possible as standard. For example gunpowder or lavender. Further smells can be acquired according to Feelreal.
For the start, the company supports games such as Ready Player One, Skyrim Bar and Death Horizon in addition to its own applications.
The company’s Kickstarter campaign will start on April 9, 2019, with the price for the headset set at almost 200 dollars.
With this development, the company is going in a new direction. In order to become a long-term success, VR must become even more lifelike. This is made possible by the face mask.
