+ - Artificial Tongue Tastes Bitter Compounds->

Submitted by
MTorrice
MTorrice writes "By coating polymer nanotubes with proteins found in human taste buds, researchers have made an electronic tongue that can taste bitter compounds, including two chemicals found in veggies such as kale. The device senses two other chemicals at femtomolar levels, making it 100,000 times more sensitive at detecting flavor molecules than previous devices."
