Set To Mimic by Sorina Răsteanu, West University Of Timisoara
Set to Mimic is a set of smart kitchenware that recreates tastes and smells of your food to your preference. By placing a noninvasive transparent gel patch with a microchip on your head, the plate and glass communicates wirelessly with your brain, to make you experience a taste or smell from the past by tapping in to your memory. That way you can eat a carrot but have the impression that you’re eating an ice cream or a steak, which makes it easier to lead a healthy life.

Air Globe is an air purifier that can simulate the air of a designated area, making sure you can always enjoy the climate of your preference. The globe collects the real-time temperature, humidity, smell and sound and replicates it in your home. Users can spin the virtual globe by hand and move the chosen region under the magnifier-like viewfinder to have that atmosphere simulated.
