Unlimited Electric Gum: A Piezo-based Electric Taste Apparatus Activated by Chewing

Abstract

Herein, we propose “unlimited electric gum,” an electric taste device that will enable users to perceive taste for as long the user is chewing the gum. We developed an in-mouth type novel electric taste-imparting apparatus using a piezoelectric element so that the piezoelectric effect is stimulated by chewing. This enabled the design of a device that does not require cables around a user's lips or batteries in their mouth. In this paper, we introduce this device and report our experimental and exhibition results.
