Aromajoin is developing digital scent technologies that can be used widely in gaming industry. While "digital scent" is still a new thing, we have researched and developed a complete solution for years. It is quite easy to be integrated into games. The solution simply includes two main parts: scent diffusing device named Aroma Shooter, and SDK for software integration.
