Adding the 4th Element
Adding a 4th element to the gaming world is the next step to adding to the gaming/cinema experience, I have been reading an article on the daily mail website written back in 2009, the article I find extremely interesting and am wondering how I can create and add this system to a installation which will comeplty capsulate the audience with out using the scratch card like the ones used in the recently released film “Spy Kids 4D”. In an article below from the Daily Mail it discusses how the Ministry of Defence is part-funding a project in which foul smells are released into the air during training videos so that recruits literally learn to sniff out trouble. Now I am particular interested in how this technology has moved on from it’s then infant state.
An it has a company called “Scent Sciences” have devlopt and are bringing to market the “ScentScape” an innovtive digital scent delivery system which rather looks like a toaster and it due out sometime this year and is priced at a very reasonable $69.99 but what I am most interested in is the developers kit which is retailed at $995.00 you can find out more on there website.
