Researchers make electric lollipop in Singapore

When we watch Master Chef, I know we all want to just put our hand through the screen of the television and yank the scrumptious food back through the screen. Well, not exactly that, but something close to that wish may not be far in future.
A group of researchers in Singapore have made an electric lollipop  that simulates a real lollipop. It does it by sending varied amounts of electric currents to produce bitter, sweet and sour tastes on the tongue.
The specified goals of such an invention are not just limited to cooking shows, but will be able to enhance video-game experience and help people with diabetes and cancer.
In light of the potential of electronic food, I guess Master Chef will have to be done online with participants from every household with an internet connection.
