Japanese scientists build taste of TV

There has been speculation and jokes about the smell of TV for years. A TV that lets you smell what is happening on screen. That should give the movie experience an extra dimension. Professor Homei Miyashita of Meji University in Japan goes one step further and is working on a screen with a flavor dispenser.

The device consists of a standard LCD monitor with a device that contains ten different aroma containers. By combining the different flavor liquids, the relevant flavor is generated and the flavor is sprayed onto a foil that is then rolled over the screen. After licking the screen, the film is rolled over and the used foil is cut off. Users who don’t feel like running their tongue over the screen can also spray the flavors on crackers and other foods.

The professor has been working on the prototype of the lickable screen for about a year. The manufacturing cost of the screen is about 100,000 yen, about 768 euros. Miyashita says the screens can come in handy at fast food restaurants or events. It is not clear when the product will hit the market.
