Revolutionizing the Virtual Reality Experience: Introducing ScentVR

Virtual Reality (VR) has come a long way since its inception and has revolutionized the way we interact with digital environments. The experience of VR is immersive and engaging, but there’s always room for improvement. And that’s where ScentVR comes in.

ScentVR is a DIY kit that allows you to use any commercially available scents (or make your own) to enhance your VR experience. The kit includes a ScentVR device, power supply, and 6 scent reservoirs, as well as a starter pack of scents. ScentVR works with any game or simulation, and guides and suggested scents are available on the website and community forums.

With ScentVR, you can add an extra layer of realism to your VR experience. The device uses a proprietary algorithm to disperse scents at intervals and in combinations, varying the strength and overlap of the smells for maximum immersion. And the best part is, ScentVR does not require any connection to the VR system โ€“ it’s completely standalone and compatible with all VR games.

For added convenience, ScentVR can be configured and operated through a web interface, allowing you to control it from your headset, phone, PC, or tablet. The unit connects to your Wi-Fi network and receives firmware upgrades automatically, so you’ll always have access to the latest features and functionality.

ScentVR is the product of a thriving open-source electronics and 3D printing community, and is completely bootstrapped. The packaging is made from recycled materials, and the ink stamps are even 3D printed!

The launch of ScentVR marks a new era in VR technology and is set to change the way we experience virtual reality. So, get ready to take your VR experience to the next level and be sure to keep an eye out for the launch of ScentVR!

New Custom Circuit Board Project- ProbeMaster is Born

Last week I finally started designing a project I’ve had in mind for several years. The concept is simple:

A basic breakout circuit board that I can connect to any device under test (DUT) and the result is many spare connections- some with on/off switches already in series and others unpopulated to add any components, connections and measuring equipment I desire.

The PCB design was done in KiCad which turned out pretty great I trhink:

Boards should be here by the end of the week and I will start on the video. As always- source files are in my GitHub repo so you can make your own too.

RESISTOR SUBSTITUTION BOX

This resistor box is pretty handy for any hobbyist or electronics work. It can dial-in any resistance value you want allowing you to work with just about any project and adapt it on the fly.
At just about $20 US it’s quite cheap for an electronics tool. The quality seems quite good and I am pretty happy with the purchase๏ฟผ
If you’re into electronics inventions or repair check this out for a resistance box I think it’s pretty handy and deserves a police on my bench

PORTABLE ELECTRONICS LAB KIT PART 2

The intent of this portable kit is to be able to make electronics projects anywhere I go.

The basics are in oscilloscope multimeter soldering equipment some parts and micro controllers. With these or do we know parts in a laptop computer I can build just about anything at least to the prototype phase

With a small amount of money you can re-create this kit with your own equipment starting small you can build it up as I did. check out the video for full instructions.๏ฟผ

CHEAP TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED USB SOLDERING IRON

This USB powered temperature controlled soldering iron actually works pretty well. The TS 800 might be a better choice but this is a lot cheaper and does the job just fine๏ฟผ. I really like the non-temperature controlled USB soldering iron’s that are much cheaper but they don’t have temperature control and this one seems to do the job just great
