…This tongue can go where ours dare not, and taste things ours cannot. You might use an electronic tongue to taste foods for harmful additives or other adulterations, for instance. “We can easily enable them to discriminate different food products,” says Nery, “to use them instead of expert panels, or in online shopping to check what is fresh, but the problem is how this information will be delivered to us. There is no way to give us a sensation of taste without sticking electrodes in the brain, and it is surely not a viable option for mass use.”

这条舌头能去我们的舌头不敢去的地方,尝我们尝不到的东西。例如,你可以使用电子舌头来品尝有害添加剂或其他掺假的食物。“我们可以很容易地让他们区分不同的食品,”Nery说,“用他们而不是专家小组,或者在网上购物时检查什么是新鲜的,但问题是这些信息将如何传递给我们。”如果不把电极植入大脑,我们就无法获得味觉,而且这种方法也不可能大规模使用。”
