A very recent member of the Virtual Mayflower Team, OVR is a company based in Burlington, Vermont, USA, specialising in the development of olfactory displays for Virtual and Mixed Realities. 

OVR combines the power of olfaction with immersive technology to produce better human outcomes in such diverse fields as defence, healthcare, heritage and education. The company’s patented ION platform is designed to function seamlessly with the sights and sounds delivered by virtual environments, translating the users’ navigation and interactions into rich, authentic multisensory experiences for greater degrees of immersion and enhanced user engagement. 

In the Virtual Mayflower project, OVR will be delivering 17th century harbourside and ship smells based on historical research by the Virtual Mayflower Team.
