Scents are coming to virtual reality
Odours, like the scent of flowers, can soon also be sensed in virtual reality. A multidisciplinary research project that is beginning at Tampere University is developing a virtual reality world that enables the production and integration of real scent experiences as part of multi-sensory virtual reality (VR) interaction.
Tampere University starts research collaboration with companies creating user interfaces of future cars
Tampere University is leading a ground-breaking project that explores the user interfaces (UI) of future cars. Today’s cars have already become computers with wheels and this trend will continue at full pace. Car manufacturers are developing new information technologies and ways to present the driver with different types of information as needed.
