Ray Tracing

Ray Tracing is the fundamental technology behind producing the most realistic images possible on a computer. It exactly replicates the way it is done in the natural world. Every single ray of light is traced from the model to your eye. Pixex by pixel, voxel by voxel, shadows and exterior lighting sources are considered. It is phenomenally computing intensive, but is used more and more commonly for VR Gameworlds and simulations.

The Symphony of Smell, A New Approach to the Sense
We have never truly succeeded at a VR scent interface. All those we have, bar none, physically release a scent into the room around the user, because we have never been able to grasp how the brain processes the sense of smell. A novel study tracing individual nerve firings with mice in controlled conditions, reveals that the actual organisation of the sense of smell is far more complex than we ever dreamed.
