Have you ever imagined tasting the food in a television show? Have you ever imagined sending the taste of your glass of wine instantly to your friend in overseas? In this workshop, we will introduce our work on digitally simulating taste sensations through electrical and thermal stimulation on the human tongue. We also use different smell interactions (perfumes) in this technology to enhance the taste sensations. Participants will learn how to craft taste sensations electronically through our device and compare them with the real sensations (for example: lemon juice, minty candy, sugar water). Furthermore, we also planned a fun session for sharing taste sensations among the participants. Finally, we will ask them to imagine the future of this technology and draw or make some mockups of possible future usage scenarios / interactions.
