VIDEO: Lickable TV screen created, now you can ‘taste’ the content!

The screen is also known as Taste-the-TV where ten canisters spray flavour onto a "hygienic film" which is rolled over the screen for the viewer to lick.

According to reports, a Japanese professor has developed a prototype “lickable” TV screen that can mimic food flavours.

How is this possible?

The screen is also known as Taste-the-TV where ten canisters spray flavour onto a “hygienic film” which is rolled over the screen for the viewer to lick. The Japanese professor is reportedly in talks with manufacturers about other possible applications of the flavor-spraying technology, such as adding flavors to toast.

What is the objective of the lickable screen?

Professor Homei Miyashita of Meiji University envisages a world of downloadable “taste content”. He believes that in the era of Covid-19, this kind of technology could enhance the way people connect with the outside world. Miyashita said:

The technology can be used to train cooks or sommeliers remotely. If made commercially, the TV would cost $875 (£735).

Speaking to a media outlet, the professor 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.

Netizens react to the lickable screen

Several people are wondering whether the middle of a global pandemic was the right time to launch Taste-the-TV.

Here’s how the Twitterati reacted to the lickable screen:

Professor Miyashita’s other achievements:

This isn’t the first time Professor Miyashita has developed something so unique. In the past, Miyashita and his students have produced a range of devices related to taste, including “a fork that makes food taste richer”.

The fork was demonstrated to a media outlet by a student. During the presentation, the student told the machine she wanted “sweet chocolate”. After a few attempts the order was sprayed on to the plastic film for her to taste. According to reports, it tasted like milk chocolate.
