Japanese researcher creates lickable TV screen because god is dead

Sometimes when I’m watching cooking shows I dream about tasting those delicious dishes. But have I ever thought about licking my TV to find out? No. No I have not — because that’d be ridiculous.

t looks like I’ve been made a fool of though. Wrap your head around this, folks: a Japanese professor, Homei Miyashita, has created a lickable TV screen that can imitate food flavors, Reuters reports. Hilariously, the device is called “Taste the TV” or “TTTV” in short.

I can’t quite straighten it in my mind. Imagine inching towards your TV, sticking your tongue out, and then… licking it? Why? I ask again: why?
