Haptic sensation while eating is a remained problem in taste display. The Food Simulator generates force to the user’s teeth to display food texture. The device is composed of four linkages. The mechanical configuration of the device is designed to fit to the mouth. A force sensor is attached to the end effecter. The Food Simulator generates force according to the force profile captured from a real food. The device is integrated with auditory and chemical display for multimodal sensation in taste.
