New Way To Taste Food: Smell It Through A Ridiculous Smartphone Add-On

taste-food-by-smelling-it

This is so ridiculous, yet so creative. I’ve heard of people trying to lower the number of calories they eat, but this is taking it a bit too far I think. Imagine you are on a diet or short on cash, so you can’t afford to go out to a nice dinner. How would you like to taste food right through your smartphone? Since our sense of taste and our sense of smell are connected, some people think this is a good idea.

In theory, you could have a bowl of rice or inexpensive noodles in front of you – then you could close your eyes and smell the juicy steak coming out of your smartphone while you eat the rice or noodles. Do you think you could fool your brain into thinking you were really eating a steak?

Or, imagine you are on a diet. Could you be satisfied by eating a piece of lettuce at the same time you are smelling chicken grilling on your smartphone? It sounds far-fetched to me, but it’s still a neat idea.

In order to taste food this way, you’d have to use the Hana Yakiniku smartphone add-on along with the corresponding app. Then using the app, you’d choose the scent you want (ribs or buttered potatoes anyone?). Then you’d just take a whiff of your smartphone to get the full effect. This will be available for purchase next month.

The scented food cartridges come in grilled meats, buttered potatoes, coffee, corn soup, cinnamon rolls, apples, strawberries and more. You can click over here to view the entire selection of scented cartridges. So if you’d like to taste food in this high tech way, you can pick this up next month when it becomes available. I don’t think I’ll be doing this. I am all about trying everything high tech, but I think I’ll keep eating the old fashioned way for now.
