Virtual Reality Makes Cookies Taste Better!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueFood

Instead of choosing a low fat brand cookie, the Japanese have created a virtual reality to modify the taste of a bland, healthier cookie.

While wearing a giant plastic helmet, cookie munchers chow down on a bland wafer which is virtually simulated to appear as a more appetizing cookie, like chocolate chip.

The virtual image, along with the added scent of the selected cookie spraying out of the head device, tricks user's taste buds into thinking they are eating the real deal!

Called the "Meta Cookie", the contraption boasts:

"By changing the combination of scent and texture to overlay on the marked cookie, "Meta Cookie" can chance its taste which the user perceives from it."

Now thats hardcore! Check out the demonstration of the contraption in action above to see how this incredibly useless inneresting invention works for yourself!
