The National University of Singapore launches Vocktail trickery…
You think it’s a martini, it tastes like a martini, but it’s actually just plain old water. If you’re drinking from the Vocktail – a virtual cocktail glass that digitally simulates multi-sensory flavour experiences – this could well be the case. This clever glass tricks your eyes, nose and tongue into thinking you’re drinking something far more extravagant thanks to its built-in LEDs, micro air-pumps, RGB lights and electrodes. The makers hope the Vocktail could help dieters and non-drinkers to create the flavour and aroma of a more tempting tipple. And, because it works like a smart cocktail glass, drinkers can share their unique tasting experiences with friends remotely.
Welcome to multi-sensory eating and drinking of the future.
