The morning after: Is it time for lickable televisions?
I made a joke about LG's weird TVs earlier in the week, but I'll bring it back. Those were good. Sensible, viz. That's because a professor at Meiji University in Japan has unveiled a prototype screen called "Taste the TV". The prototype sends electrical signals to 10 taste cans that spray flavors on film cover for those willing to lie. Creator Homei Miyashita thinks of the appliance as less of a home flavor appliance, and more as an appliance for food professionals, such as chefs and sommeliers.
The prototype is, yes, a bit icky, despite the hygienic film that can be manipulated between flavors. according to Reuters, Miyashita is already talking about other applications for the spray technology, like adding pizza or chocolate flavors to a slice of toasted bread. Don't tell him about Nutella.

The winner of the anonymous auction will receive a copy of the communication protocol for the SMS, a certificate of authentication and a digital framework that will show the animation of a phone receiving the message. Better than a Ghost Recon .
Includes Lenovo, Google and Intel.
Lenovo will follow Amazon, Meta, Twitter and show T-Mobile support in holding back from CES 2022. The four said they would not attend in person due to concerns related to the new omicron COVID-19 version. And while they're all important names in tech, they're not the same hardware player as Lenovo. The PC maker often launches or features the latest hardware at a Las Vegas show. Intel and Google have also announced that they will not have a physical presence at the event.
"They talked about how a lot of employees feel this way."
Amazon hits at the end of the busiest season of the year. It is also when its staff are under the greatest pressure, that they often have to adjust mandatory overtime and are often not allowed to book holidays.
