Taste the TV- Japanese expert develops taste television that you have to lick- A Japanese professor has invented a television that can broadcast taste. The idea is not to watch horror movies with it, but to train chefs remotely. Something that certainly comes in handy in this corona time. Salient detail: you have to taste television lick to experience the flavors.
Reuters writes that Professor Homei Miyahista of Meiji University developed the TTTV. The Taste the TV has a normal screen with next to it a device with which flavors are composed. You use it in combination with a kind of cartridges containing basic flavors. There are ten pieces containing sweet, sour, salt and bitter, which are sprayed on a transparent sheet that is placed on the screen. Then you go to the screen and lick exactly where the product can be seen on the skin to taste what the chef means.

Miyashita did the invention purely because of corona, but he sees more bread in it than just training for chefs. He thinks he can also sell his TTTV to luxury restaurants, for example, that can reach people all over the world by offering the experience of what it is like to eat there. In fact, Miyashita also literally looks like bread in it: it can make a piece of toast taste like pizza or chocolate. The professor is already in talks with companies to make this amazing piece of technology bigger.
Licking the television
A video has already been made so we can get a better idea of this new piece of technology (see above). Although the question is whether it would not all taste too artificial. In any case, no factory has yet been connected that will fully produce the Taste the TV. The taste television would cost about 770 euros in mass production, but there is now only a prototype.
