YOU CAN LICK THIS TV SCREEN TO TASTE THE FLAVOR OF THE FOOD IT DISPLAYS

 A Japanese professor has developed a mind blowing invention that let people savour their favorite food by licking on the TV screen. 




The Taste The TV (TTTV), is a device that uses a carousel of 10 flavour canisters that spray and combined flavors onto a plastic film in a flat-screen TV to create the taste of food which will be able the viewer to try.



Through this technology, people could now experience "of something like eating at a restaurant on the other side of the world, even while staying at home," said Meiji University professor Homei Miyashita.




"I'm thinking of making a platform where tastes from all over the world can be be distributed as taste content. It's the same as watching a movie or listening to a song that you like," he added.



The professor is working to a team of 30 students that has produced a variety of flavour-related devices. Miyashita said, he built the TTTV prototype over the past year and that he estimated a commercial version would cost about 100,000 yen ($875) to make.



A 22-year-old student Yuki Hou showed to Reuters how the technology works. She told the machine she wanted to taste sweet chocolate - after which the flavor canisters produced a sample onto the plastic sheet attached on the screen.



Hou said, she feels like licking on the screen with milk chocolate. "It's sweet like a chocolate sauce."
