The tech is neat, but as someone who has Hyposmia (reduced ability to smell) I would most certainly not be the target demographic for this sort of experience. It's interesting to hear Linus and Colin talk about the "smell" that water and pine trees give off, it's not really something that makes a whole lot of sense from my perspective. It's like saying "Look how shiny that car is!" when the car is a mile away and there's a bunch of other cars next to it. The car _could_ be shiny, but how you could possibly tell just relies on you taking the person's word for it unless you have a telescope on hand, or have seen the car up close before. It's not that you don't know what shiny cars look like, it's that you have no idea how they could possibly _see_ that the car is shiny from that far away. Anyway, getting back to the tech, I think that although the idea is interesting, practically speaking, I would worry that the room or area that the smell setup is stationed would be stained with a permanent combination of every scent. It'd be like walking into the house of someone who is a chronic smoker, or someone who constantly burns incense. There's just this thing that's kind of burned into every surface of the room. Maybe essential oils are different and aren't as long-lasting as cigarette smoke? I would worry about it damaging the neutral smell of the room compared to the rest of the house. It also might mean that the user needs to take a shower afterward if they've been gaming for more than a few hours. I just imagine the entire area kind of having a weird odor to it over time and would hope I don't have a carpet in that area.

you know what would be better ?.... put like a chip underneath or QR code to instantly tell the software "this is coffee smell", "this is waterfall smell" instead of it being manual or set in stone settings Will also allow you to run different configurations without needing to set anything

imagine setting this thing up to work with Binding of Isaac. Instructions to diy authentic smells; Okay so for the shit and piss simply shit in one of the jars and piss in another one. For the smell of rotting corpse leave a bit of meat out to rot for a week or two then put in jar. For burnt corpses I recommend lighting some roadkill on fire, you wanna get the bones in there for that authentic burnt body smell. Now getting placenta might be tricky if you aren't pregnant but you may be able to arrange to get one from a farmer after one of their animals give birth, either way be sure to keep as much blood from the birth as possible.

In the future, this is gonna be done by sending signals to your brain to simulate sense-stimulation. I bet they're looking back laughing at this.

What we conceive as smells are nothing more than stimulus that our brain detect as such, in the future once we reach a more advance knowledge of our brains there would be hardware made specifically for this purpose and as in real live...the effect would be pleasant or horrible depending of where you are

I can just do a homebrew version of this. Just get some friends together when playing VR and have them light different candles and spray air freshener while playing games. Like when you get to the distillery in Half-Life Alyx, just have them splash you with rubbing alcohol to really immerse you.

When you talk about blood are we talking about regular or zombie blood? I'm sure the smells would be different! Zombie blood would be like the smell of rotten tomatoes maybe with rotten body corpse aomg the way! Also it would be nice for the smell to be generated rather than buying these these containers! It's an expensive that won't last long!
