Japanese Professor Creates Lickable TV Screen You Can Taste

We’re always hearing about unusual and cutting-edge products from Japan but the latest one is kind of a head-shaker. It’s called “Taste the TV” and it’s a TV screen that you can LICK to taste different flavors.

According to a report from Reuters, the screen is able to imitate food flavors and uses a “carousel of 10 flavor canisters that spray in combination” to imitate the flavors. Then the spray sample is rolled onto a “hygienic film” and then placed on a flat TV screen and you can taste away!

Meiji University professor Homei Miyashita said “the goal is to make it possible for people to have the experience of something like eating at a restaurant on the other side of the world, even while staying at home.” He goes on to say that a commercial version would probably cost around $875 to make. Miyashita has also helped produce a fork that makes food taste richer and is hoping to create a new platform where flavors from around the world can be downloaded and shared.
