One Day You'll Be Able To Touch, Sniff And Taste The Entire Internet

Wish you could touch, sniff or lick something you see online? This concept will eventually make that wish come true as you slide your hand inside the device to cop a feel while it spits out a scented flavour strip.

I know I can't be the only one thinking that this device, dubbed Sense, would be used in combination with some not-so-safe-for-work websites, but it's absolutely brilliant even if you skip those applications.

Basically the device would recreate temperature, roughness, softness, hardness and pressure in order to let you "touch" whatever's on your screen, while a special "smell and flavour-ink micro-printer" would print out lil' wax strips which melt on your tongue for a flavour and scent-filled finish.

I don't think I could see myself using this thing on a regular basis, if it ever gets made, but there would definitely be some potential for a few hours of amusement and virtual boob-squeezing. And maybe something more productive, too. [Design Blog]
