After Metaverse, Japanese scientist invents a lickable TV screen that can imitate food flavours

December 24, 2021 0

What happened:

Meiji University professor Homei Miyashita has invented a TV that an individual can lick to get the flavour of whatever’s on-screen. Homei Miyashita has named it “Taste the TV” as it sends electrical signals to ten flavour canisters creating unique sprays that cover a film overlay. It took a year for the Japanese professor to develop the prototype and the cost is estimated at around 800 US dollars. Along with a team of 30 students, Homei Miyashita produced a variety of flavour-related devices. 

Details:

Reuters quoted the professor saying, “In the Covid-19 era, this kind of technology can enhance the way people connect and interact with the outside world.” At the same time, the professor aims to create a platform where different worldwide cuisine tastes can be downloaded and enjoyed by the users.

Also:

It is pertinent to mention that Taste the TV is fully-hygienic, as claimed by the professor. His goal is to make it possible for people to experience something like eating at a restaurant on the other side of the world, even while staying at home.
