In the same way that we experience the real-world through a range of senses, experiencing a virtual environment through multiple sensory modalities may augment both our presence within a scenario and our reaction to it.
Season Traveller is a wearable Virtual Reality (VR) system that integrates olfactory, thermal and wind stimuli into a traditional audio-visual Head Mounted Display (HMD). By doing this, Season Traveller aims to increase users’ sense of presence in VR experiences by simulating a range of real-world conditions such as aromas, ambient temperatures and wind patterns.
