The natural evolution of media
At-Home Streaming media and Virtual & Telepresence communication technologies have exploded. Post-pandemic projections all point to increased use of streaming media entertainment, immersive and virtual communications, and a growing and Work-at-Home Culture that craves deeper media functionality.
The future of media must do more than just “show-and-tell”, but also teleport us out of our homes and bring us to wherever we want to go.
Hypnos Virtual has addressed this need by developing Scentscape™, a multi-sensual Immersive Media technology that transforms your TV and Smart Devices into the next evolutionary leap forward in media and virtual communications. Engineered with proven neuroscience technology, Scentscape™ creates a media-synced bio-aromatic “Scent-track,” that allows us to experience media like never before - delivering multi-sensual immersive media that transforms streaming, shared, and live events across all media channels, including AR & VR.
The Scentscape™ Experience even goes beyond immersive media by actually "pulling us into the media itself" through mood uplifting neuroscience verified biochemistry.
ALL NATURAL SENSATIONS
The Scentscape™ technology accomplishes its fascinating neurological influence on the brain by employing neuroscience-verified all-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 no longer in our own homes, but teleported and immersed within the media itself.
Scentscape's bio-aroma Scentrac™ technology has been developed from many years of research with top minds in diverse disciplines. This development strategy has led to Scentscape™ becoming its own Artform as well as a diversely functional media system with multiple uses for multiple markets.
The Hypnos Scentrac technology is a Media-Synced bio-aromatic breeze that flows out of the Scentscape™ machine with the media being watched and experienced, like TV, movies, and VR. The Scentrac is linked with media like a musical soundtrack - locked in with quarter-second precision, and containing the "practical aromatic genome" with millions of aromatic combinations.
Pictured below: There are three main genres of Scentscape's Scentrac™ 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.
THE HYPNOS MEDIA-SYNC SCENTRAC™ EXPLAINEd
Bio-immersive virtual experiences
Virtual Nature and Virtual Nature Therapy are examples of how Scentscape™ combines immersive media entertainment with therapeutics to create a truly functional "Theratainment System." This is all possible due to Scentscape's proprietary cold-diffusion technology of neuroscience-verified all-natural essences “farmed from Earth".
Shinrin-Yoku is one form of specific Nature Therapy. It is a Japanese-developed forest-exposure therapy practiced worldwide and is advocated by many physicians and therapists. While most people are not able to take a trip to a forest or scenic nature location whenever they want, Scentscape's "Virtual Forest Bathing" immerses users into aromatic forests, woods, beaches, rainforests, and many other scenic nature settings that are uncannily life-like, causing the mind and body to feel like "you're really there." Scentscape™ is the first and only media system that bridges the gap between technology and the natural world.
