The Digital Lollipop (Electric lollipop) taste tester by Nimesha Ranasinghe and company is capable of stimulating different taste sensations. The Digital Lollipop digital invention is made to stimulate the tongue by utilizing electrode stimulation on the human tongue. The technological system is capable of manipulating the properties of electrical currents to recreate different stimuli. The small wand-like tool is put to the tongue sending electrode currents to formulate a certain taste in your mouth.
The brilliant invention sends inverse magnitude, frequency and polarity currents to different regions of the human tongue. The electrical stimulation is still under analysis. The results have been astounding. The Digital Lollipop can make you taste popcorn for example, without actually having to eat the food. The electrodes trigger the taste in your brains memory storage. The flavor without the calories sounds genius to me.
