Virtual glass from Singapore will allow you to create any drink to your taste

Voktail – virtual glass for a cocktail, developed by the National University of Singapore. Its main “chip” — the ability to mimic the tastes, the smells and the colors of different drinks with the help of digital technology. C it can, for example, is easier to keep dieting.

Development Voktail began in 2013. Then was established its predecessor – Digital Lollipop (Digital Lollipop), the electronic device synthesizes the virtual flavors. The experience the engineers used when developing Voktail. Its main elements are two silver electrodes on the rim of a glass, through which the tip of the tongue transmitted pulses, mimicking the different taste sensations – sweet, salty, sour, bitter. The picture complements installed in the bottom of the glass of the led that adds to the virtual cocktail party the corresponding color.

But that’s not all. Special cartridges filled with a glass of the fragrant molecules that creates the illusion of flavor at the moment of SIP. Virtual range of cocktails is quite extensive. Using a special application, the user Voktail can independently “tune” the desired taste, color and smell.

The developers, first of all, I hope to interest a novelty to those who decided to go on a diet and even diabetics. Just imagine, they can drink a simple “sweetened” by computer water without the slightest threat to health. It remains to wait and see how long the body will tolerate this deception.
