Temporary Vaping Ban On Feelreal VR Mask…

January 11, 2020 ·

It looks like for those hoping to receive the Feelreal Mask, it seems that there might be a slight delay for those that backed the Feelreal VR Mask project on Kickstarter. The mask earnestly added to your experience in Virtual Reality by allowing the simulation of smell, wind, vibration, punches so much more and on top of that, was compatible with any VR headset.

So in essence if you were fishing out on the lake for example, you smell the water, the air and more all with scents put into the lower chamber that would attach to your VR headset. But it seems there was one problem, breathing in of the chemicals. This is where the FDA has stepped in and put a ban of the vaporization of liquids that one would inhale the aromatic fluids. Technically, the unit itself is not a “vaping product”, it does fall into that vaporization of aromatic liquids for consumer inhaling.

Per the official statement of the Fellreal VR mask:

Dear backers!

The information we have received from FDA considers all types of vaping devices dangerous to people. Since Feelreal Mask is technically a vaping device, we had to start a new round of testing and improving the product to get a permission for mass production and sales.

We didn’t know about the possible danger when we have started to work on the Mask concept, and we do care about our users’ health. So if we don’t get the approval after a new series of tests, we will have to close the project. We’re terribly sorry for the inconveniences, but there’s nothing we can do at the moment. We couldn’t imagine that our Mask would fall under such restrictions.

We will put a new update right after we have any new details on this matter.

This does come as a bit of surprise and frustration and concerns through the backers of this project.

Let’s hope things get situated with the FDA in a healthy way.
