After Dark
Get Surreal (Clip)
Date: February 6, 2011

Takuji and Takashi have created a system that uses augmented reality to control the flavor of an actual cookie. By presenting the image of a cookie through a virtual reality headset, then reproducing the scent through perfume tubes, Meta Cookie may trick you into thinking that a plain sugar cookie is actually an almond or chocolate cookie!
After Dark is an evening series exclusively for adults that mixes cocktails, conversation, and playful, innovative science and art programs. Check out videos from these exciting events.
