Re: ScentVR Build- Adding Real World Smells to Virtual Reality

This weekend I made the remainder of the website live. It has the foundation for the project and future expansion. It is totally bootstrapped with all web dev done by me (so its not great) but I think passable for now so I can put all my resources into the actual hardware.

Re: P&J Trading Nature Scent pack

This arrived today and so far- I like it very much. The scents are quite good and as a starter- they are a great collection. The only one I dont really "get" is Rain which doesnt really smell like rain to me but has a very pleasant smell. The big surprise was actually Ocean Breeze. I expec...

Creating our own essential oils

Ive been going down the rabbit hole of essential oil creation :)

This is a great starter article explaining the basics of making a scent. It can be applied to make any custom scent for ScentVR

Re: ScentVR- Adding Real World Smells to Virtual Reality

I started designing the PCB this week and decided on 6 logic level mosfets since I already have them in stock :) They also allow for upscaling the device to huuuuuge fans if desired with minor rework.

Re: ScentVR- Adding Real World Smells to Virtual Reality

I started the build by raiding the Dollar Store as I always do :) I found condiment jars which will be the perfect size to hold different scents with a decent surface area for dispersion. For simplicity I will have 6 fans controlled by a microcontroller with possible web interface and OLED display. ...
