Is an Ultrasound Wine Tasting Helmet in Your Future?

  1. I think that it would be a good addition for drinking the wines from the Japanese chemistry lab, that stated they could create the greatest wines known to mankind, though only chemistry. Somehow, most tasters declared that the "numerically correct wine" was not worth drinking. Maybe with the correct helmet, it would be?

      Hi, Hunt:

      If you read the article, it has significance in the science of sensory perception. The phenomenon is not creating or altering the wine, only (at the right ultrasound directed at te right place inside the skull) enhancing taste perceptions. The implication being that the helmeted taster might well have finer discernment than s/he would, sans chapeau.

          Hmmmm... Either your sip tube is facing backward or... is it a... sparging line?

          But I like it as an avatar.

            Sip tube? Directly thru the cranium.
