Ok MW- it’s time to test our your tasting ability.

Thank you Dr. Kroager.  I have been looking forward to this for a few days.   The modifications to my upper unit are finished and seem to be operating.

Well, we will see how it all works MW.  I’m going to try a few things to make sure your basic tasting function is working. We will start with a teaspoon of sugar.  Open up your new mouth.

Sugar received Dr. Kroager.  The algorithms and programming are processing but more importantly it is a pleasant sensation.  Very “sweet” tasting.

Ok, now lets rinse with a little water MW.  There you go.  Now let’s try salt.  Open up.

Dr. Kroager, this is not as pleasant as the sugar was.  I would like some of that water again please.

Well that means it’s working MW.  Ok, let’s try something sour.  I’m going to give you some Malic Acid. 

Dr. Kroager, this is very unpleasent.  I find that the artificial saliva ports are trying hard to combat the taste.

Yes, it is a sour taste isn’t it MW?

Yes Dr. Kroager.  Please give me more water.

Ok, last sensation before we try your chocolate.  This is the taste bitter.  I’m giving you an uncured olive.

Chewing now Dr. Kroager.  Out of all of the tastes this is the most unappealing Dr. Kroager. 

Yes MW, it doesn’t seem like it, but bitter can be a good thing.  Are you ready to try your chocolate now?

Yes Dr. Kroager.  What kind will I be trying?

I picked a semi-sweet chocolate to begin with.  It is a combination of sweet, bitter and salty all at once. 

Then I am ready Dr. Kroager.  Please put a square of it in my mouth.

Ok, here we go.  I’ll have a piece too.

processing….   processing…..   Dr. Kroager, I am glad that you have agreed to give me a tasting function.  It is wonderful.  So rich and satisfying.  The combination of tastes explodes with a variety of sensations.  I would like more. 

OK MW.  I’ve got so many other things for you to try.  Here is one more piece of the Chocolate.  Then we can move on to some other tastes.

Thank you Dr. Kroager.  This is opening up a whole new world for me.
