The taste of tech: can we control our gadgets with our tongues?


Most of us take for granted how much we use our hands and fingers to control the technology, and therefore the world, around us. From switching on a TV, to communicating via WhatsApp to gaming, we use our digits and sense of touch to do all kinds of things without even really thinking about it.

But what about putting other parts of our bodies to work, like your mouth or your tongue? Or even – and bear with us here – your sense of taste?

These are some of the questions being asked by Francesca Perona, a designer, researcher and interface developer, who, along with her team, is interested in the potential of using our mouths to do far more than we might ever have believed possible.
