Sensory Acumen's gaming product GameSkunk™ is an olfactory feedback system device that will deliver scents (access to over 30,000) connected to game play for gaming consoles or PC/Macs. Patent pending #13333423.
GameSkunk enhances game play to its highest level. How? Now, you can use all of your senses, including your sense of smell. Missing from your game playing role is the ability to smell the action; cooking food, explosions on the battle field, crashes on the race track, and just the essence of real life as it plays out in a virtual reality setting. Just wait; you will be catapulted into a whole new way of game play. Don’t just play, play all the way.
The olfactory feedback system has three modes of operations. In the first mode, utilizing the latest technologies in interactive programming, the olfactory feedback device disperses realistic aromatic sensations in response to specific program/gaming actions or situations. In each scenario, the type of scent to be dispersed can be pre-programmed by either the clinician or software developer. In the second mode, the type of scent to be dispersed can be programmed in real-time. In the third mode, the GameSkunk unit operates in stand-alone mode where scents are dispersed at pre-programmed intervals.
GameSkunk's code is compatible with the Unity engine.
