The natural evolution of media
The Macrocosm, the Microcosm. As Above, So Below.
Hypnos brings the fractal intelligence of nature into our personal worlds.
Welcome to the Bio-Digital world of the Metaverse
"The future of media must do more than just 'show-and-tell', but teleport us to wherever we want to go."
Scentscape™ Bio-Media is experienced as a bio-aromatic “Scent track” that is continually changing like a cinematic musical score; it’s a totally unique experience allowing us to experience media like never before - delivering bio-aromatic immersive experiences that transform streaming, shared, and live events across all media channels, including AR & VR.
Bio-Media even "pulls us into the media itself" through mood uplifting neuroscience verified bioaromas that communicate with the brain for speed-of-light cognitive shifts in perception.
Bio-Media works with all media and all devices
Scentscape™ Bio-Media is "digitally harnessed nature", and it accomplishes its fascinating neurological influence on the brain by employing neuroscience-verified natural essences “farmed from Earth" and atomizes them into a "living" media-synced bio-aromatic airstream, mixed on-the-fly with quarter-second precision. Using proprietary cold-diffusion technology, this translates into life-like experiences that feel so incredibly real that our brains literally make us feel like we are teleported and immersed within the media experience.
Bio-media is "digital nature"
Bio-Media is experienced as a choreographed “Scent track” that is continually changing like a cinematic musical score. It can be Media-Synced with TV, movies, music, VR, AR- or no other media at all. The Scentrac has quarter-second precision technology, and contains the "practical aromatic genome" with millions of aromatic combinations (when experienced with the Scentscape Cinema model. Smaller sized units available and customizable).
Pictured below: There are three main genres of the Scentscape Bio-Media airstream: Ambient, Extra-Diegetic, and Neurolimbic. Each type offers specific functionality, taking the Scentscape™ technology far beyond any "Smell-o-Vision" concept.
Ambient Scentracs (shown on left in the chart above) are what most people think of when thinking of a "Scent Track", but this is only a part of the Scentscape™ technology. In addition to Scentscape's millions-of-aroma-combinations, Scentscape's neuroscience-based organic chemistry has also developed into a new Art Form that goes far beyond "smell" alone.
Extra-Diegetic Scentrac (middle in chart) is a completely new concept that is best explained in comparison to a movie soundtrack with a musical score. Characters in movies do not "hear" the Extra-Diegetic musical score. Examples are the famous soundtrack from "Jaws", or the inspirational music in "Rocky", or the many musical scores created by John Williams and Hans Zimmer that all play a powerful and critical role in stirring viewers emotions - so we feel the way the director and producers want us to feel (and thus enjoy the movie). Horror movies employ obvious Extra-Diegetic emotional stirring to scare or create tension, often "making or breaking" a movie. Similarly, Hypnos Virtual has developed an Extra-Diegetic Scentrac Artform that stirs and moves viewers' emotions in the desired ways the scent-director (or Scent Poet) wants, often with even more power and influence on the viewer than the musical score.
Neurolimbic Scentracs (on right in chart) are primarily based on Neuroscience data from EEG brain scans. Because these work neurologically through the olfactory system in the upper nose, this is a powerful "speed-of-light cognitive influencer." This influencer is also employed in the Extra-Diegetic and Ambient Scentracs to seamlessly stir and uplift users' emotions. This is explained in the chart above through the use of side arrows.
Bio-Media Scentrac Explained
Bio-Media is Green Media
Scentscape’s Bio-Media is the first and only Green Media in existence. Since Bio-Media is made of plant chemistry and "Farmed from Earth", using Scentscape reduces the Earth’s carbon footprint and increases atmospheric Oxygen. The more the media is used, the more plants, crops, and forests are planted, the more Carbon is pulled from the atmosphere, and the more Oxygen created.
“If forests can be cut down to raise more beef, we can plant more forests to grow plants that produce the natural essences that are used to create Bio-Media.”
Overview of Greenhouse gas emissons
Carbon dioxide enters the atmosphere through burning fossil fuels (coal, natural gas, and oil), solid waste, and other biological materials. Carbon dioxide is removed from the atmosphere when it is absorbed by plants as part of the biological carbon cycle. https://www.epa.gov/ghgemissions/overview-greenhouse-gases
According to research done at UC Berkley, there is evidence that global CO2 levels have increased. CO2 Meter states, "The terrestrial biosphere - which includes plants and trees, has an impact on global CO2 levels. Combined with oceans, the terrestrial biosphere removes about 45% of the CO2 emitted by human activities each year."
