There are various causes due to which computers have their own stand in our life. It provides a very good facility of fast processing, sound and picture. The virtual reality concept has provided very good features to the computer systems. The concept of virtual reality is introduced by the computer programmers to provide more attachments to the user. There are several concepts of the virtual reality that are available such as digital smell, virtual theater, electronics hand gloves, multipoint surround sound system, 3d goggles. The digital smell is basically a hardware software combination. The hardware part of digital smell will produce the smell, and the software part will evaluate the smell equation and generate specific signals for specific smell and finally that smell will be produced by the device. The hardware device is a device like speaker, like speaker this device is also connected to the computer system. For this device there is also a driver program which will evaluate the digital equation for generating specific gas.
