Oculus Whiffed: Camsoda’s gas mask lets you smell virtual reality porn

And the weirdest wearable of the week is…
This mask lets you smell VR

Technology owes a lot to porn. It breathed life into the Super 8 film, helped VHS kill Betamax, and promises to be integral in propelling virtual reality into the mainstream.

Enter NSFW site Camsoda to help it along with this little contribution, a gizmo that adds smells to your sexy virtual reality experiences. That's not a gas mask you see before you, but a VR scent dispenser for when you want that extra layer of immersion.

First, pick your scent. Options range from the concerningly ambiguous - 'private parts' and 'environment' - to 'body odor' and even 'food'. Then just slot your chosen cartridge into the mask - like you're popping Tetris into your Game Boy - slip on your VR headset and do whatever it is you do.

Clearly Camsoda knows the idea is quite funny, but it's not just a daft joke - you can actually pre-order the mask for $69.99 on the site, while cartridges range from $5.99 to $9.99.

There's also a pearl of ingenuity here: smell isn't exactly holding VR back right now but one day it will be more seriously considered, and while the OhRoma's angle is plainly sex, we can see this being used for so much more.
