We have seen a lot of devices that are being developed to send "physical" items digitally through your internet connection. Some researchers from the National University of Singapore have been working on sending lemonade digitally with the goal of being able to send a whole host of cocktails in the future. Uh....OK. A lot of you will be happy to know that Frag-Harder lights are going to a good use finally.

Ranasinghe and his team used an RGB colour sensor and a pH sensor to capture the colour and acidity of a freshly poured glass of lemonade. This data was sent to a special tumbler in another location that was filled with water. An electrode around the rim of the tumbler mimicked the sourness of the lemonade by stimulating the drinker’s taste buds with a pulse of electricity. LED lights replicated the colour.
