Virtual Reality that has was so far targeting only the sense of sight and sound, will now be focusing over smell as well with digital scent technology. The Digital scent or e- smell technology is the most underrated technology because more than 50 percent of millennials are of the view that sense of smell is least important than any tech device but is perhaps is the most important one.

Also, a research report by The Insight Partners states that “the digital scent technology market is anticipated to augment in upcoming years mainly owing to the rising applications of e-nose technology for clinical diagnosis and quality assessment of food. “
In addition, the technology probability has the ability of using human odor recognition via sources like breath, saliva, sweat, skin for medical diagnosis.

The iSmell is a peripheral device that reads a digital scent file followed by creating a smell from a “palette” of around 128 chemicals stored and then wafts in the air with the help of a small fan.
