A virtual glass from Singapore will allow you to create any beverages to your taste

09 January of 2018 by


Voktail – a virtual cocktail glass, developed by specialists of the National University of Singapore. Its main “chip” is the ability to mimic the tastes, smells and colors of various drinks using digital technology. With it, for example, it is easier to follow a diet.

The development of Voktail began in 2013. Then was created his predecessor – Digital Lollipop (Digital Candy), an electronic device that synthesizes virtual tastes. The engineers used this experience when developing Voktail. Its main elements are two silver electrodes on the rim of the glass, through which impulses are transmitted to the tip of the tongue, imitating various taste sensations – sweet, salty, acidic, bitter. The picture is complemented by the LED installed at the bottom of the glass, adding the color corresponding to it in the virtual cocktail.

But that’s not all. Special cartridges fill the glass with flavored molecules, creating the illusion of flavor at the time of the pharynx. The range of virtual cocktails is quite extensive. With the help of a special application, the user of Voktail can independently adjust the taste, color and smell that he needs.

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