A display can simulate the taste of food

The screen uses different flavors to produce each flavor.

Homei Miyashita, professor at Meiji University developed by a device called Taste the TV (TTTV) that allows you to taste a variety of foods and foods. The different aromas are placed in ten containers and then sprayed onto a “hygienic foil” and the latter finally appears on the display. By combining aromas, different food flavors can be created.


The development could be useful, for example, in the remote training of chefs and wine experts. At the same time, one of the goals is for people to experience the feeling of eating in a restaurant in another part of the world while they are at home. Due to the coronavirus epidemic, many users have been skeptical of the delicious screen, saying it may not be a good idea to lick a surface right now. There is currently only one prototype of the device. The commercial version is estimated to cost 100,000 yen, or 875 US dollars would cost.

The professor said he has already consulted with a number of companies on how the technology could be utilized. It also wants to create an online platform from which users can download and try out taste samples. This page would be practically like an iTunes for flavors. Interestingly, Taste the TV is not Miyashita’s first invention of its kind, as he has previously created a number of “flavor devices” with his 30 or so students, including a fork, to help make the taste of food more complete.
