Amazon lets you flip through many of the books in their online store, while iTunes lets you listen to a preview of a song you’re thinking of downloading. And, soon, online supermarkets could let you sample their wares as well, thanks to this unique synthesiser that can simulate various tastes on your tongue.
Developed by researchers at the National University of Singapore, the simulator uses a silver electrode placed on the tongue that artificially stimulates the regions responsible for tasting sweet, sour, salty and bitter flavours. By using a combination of varying electrical currents and subtly shifting the temperature of the electrode, a convincing recreation of various flavours can be experienced.
