Description
Adrian Cheok, a professor at Keio University's Graduate School of Media Design in Japan, is working on a "digital lollypop" that can electrically and thermally stimulate the tongue to produce basic flavors—bitter, sour, salty, sweet. He wants to design a system for the "multisensory Internet" in which a friend can send you a flavor over the Internet.
