Ever wished if you could make your boring food feel delicious? Well, wish no more; this could actually happen thanks to this new device called Taste Buddy.
The prototype device was designed by scientists from City University in London. The device is designed in such a way to trick the tongue into thinking that the food you eat is delicious.
Science behind it
The device will be emitting thermal and electrical signals into the tongue which would then simulate the taste buds. The initial prototype has only sweet and salty tastes to showcase.
“What started out as a fun engineering experiment has now led to something much more exciting with the potential to have a positive social impact. The Taste Buddy could eventually help save lives, by allowing people to switch to healthier food choices.” Said Professor Adrian Cheok, the leader of the team that created the device
