Testing smell

Posted in Acceptance testing by testing in London on November 9, 2008

From Telegraph

The Ministry of Defence has spent around £20,000 into research into whether smell improves current computer game-based training. Researchers are testing whether the smells help create a more realistic simulation of being in hostile areas as well as if the aromas help troop memory.

It means that soon soldiers being deployed to the Middle East could be able to take an authentic walk around the area without stepping out of the country. The game works with the smell box being hooked up to a computer as a large plasma screen displays scenes from hostile territories.
