Another real news item just made for this blog.
I wonder if this technology could save the newspaper industry. If a semi jack-knifes and spills its load of marshmallow Peeps all over the highway, you could lick the story to taste them. If a world leader upchucks on another world leader*, you could taste whatever it was that made him hurl. If they announce a recall of peanut butter products and you don't know what peanut butter tastes like, you could taste it. The possibilities are endless.
*In case you're too young to remember, this actually happened. George Bush Sr. threw up on the Prime Minister of Japan. It happened at a fancy Japanese state dinner and it was awesome.
