The virtual reality will connect to process your other feelings
Existing fonts of virtual reality are capable to deceive your eyes and a vestibular mechanism, but they cannot transfer other feelings from the events in video game or the interactive film. Developers from the American city of Brooklyn started on Kickstarter kraudfanding-platform campaign in support of the development – a gadget of FeelReal which is put on the lower part of the face of the person and in many respects supplements feelings from the virtual worlds.
The FeelReal device is capable to generate a large quantity of various smells by means of seven replaceable cartridges, tiny coolers which will create illusion of the wind touching your skin are built in it. Heating elements will allow you to feel heat from virtual fire or a lava, and the ultrasonic system of generation of water vapor will help you to present that you are on a beach or at the river. Will add all this vibration system with adjustable power of effect, and also the built-in microphone for voice control and communication with other players in online. FeelReal works at distance to 10 meters from the computer, and on one charge of the accumulator it is capable to function regularly till four o’clock in succession.
Certainly, here it is necessary to reflect seriously: whether we want to feel really smells of the favourite games? Developers argue that can simulate a smell of the wood, the jungle, burned rubber, a smoke, weapon gunpowder and a set of other "aromas" which hardly it is possible to call especially pleasant. By the way, developers of games can pay 300 dollars to founders of FeelReal in order that those created an exclusive smell by their order which does not suffice to concrete game.
In the 60th years of the last century at some American cinemas the Smell-O-Vision system which allowed to feel to the audience a set of various smells started to work. «The secret smell» during which viewing to the auditorium 30 various aromas moved became the first film with support of this device. The tube by means of which the viewer felt the corresponding smell at the right time viewing was brought to each chair. In spite of the fact that the technology was promising, it did not please to some audience, therefore it was decided to refuse.
Presently engineers even more often come back using smells for expansion of a range of feelings from viewing of the film or game process. Founders of a gadget of FeelReal at the moment of writing of this material collected 17 000 dollars from required to them 50 000 (at the price in 249 dollars for a gadget). Considering that since the fund raising beginning already passed two weeks, we can assume that people are still skeptically adjusted concerning similar innovations. In case campaign after all comes to the end with success, founders of FeelReal promise to let out also a high-grade helmet of virtual reality of Nirvana. But it already another story altogether.
