You could soon be able to experience what you are watching with all of your senses.

There is one flaw when it comes to cooking shows – you get to see the finished product come out of the oven or frying pan, but no matter how hard you try it's impossible to taste the results. Scientists at the National University of Singapore may have developed a solution which involves a simulator that uses electrodes to stimulate the taste buds on your tongue. It can reproduce salt, sweet, sour and bitter sensations, and their hope is that you will be able to taste that pie as it comes out of the oven from your living room.
