Participants will learn how to craft taste sensations electronically through our device and compare them with the real sensations (for example: lemon juice, minty candy, sugar water). Furthermore, we also planned a fun session for sharing taste sensations among the participants. Finally, we will ask them to imagine the future of this technology and draw or make some mockups of possible future usage scenarios / interactions.
