An electronic tongue has the capability of “tasting” food and water for bacteria and toxicity levels

The future of food safety is here. Almost.

What if you could ensure, electronically, that every item that passes through a grocery store’s doors, or even a country’s borders, is entirely safe? Researchers are developing a device that can electronically “taste” or scan food and water for bacterial contamination and toxicity. V. Litvinenko and the team who wrote about the device in the science journal, ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, say that the tongue will be made from silicon, and will be both low-cost and environmentally friendly. The same technology could even be applied to human bodies, which could be scanned for signs of disease or injury.

The electronic tongue works in much the same way as a human or animal tongue, with “tiny sensors [that] detect substances in a sample and send signals to a computer for processing just as taste buds sense and transmit flavor messages to the brain,” according to the American Chemical Society.

Similar technology is already being used to determine the authenticity of Thai food and measure beer quality. The device has thus far been tested by blindly “tasting” water, cognac, Armagnac, and whiskey, and was able to determine the difference (complete with taste profiles) of each sample.

I imagine that John Hunt is an average guy. I'm sure he likes a beer or two on the weekend. I bet he likes to rock out after working 9 to 5. Bet he likes to turn up the rock when he gets together with "the boys." I'd also imagine that he likes rock music of various types: classic, alternative, indie, and college. He likes to do his rock thing with his "boys" called Fivehead, and their music is just dandy like ear candy.

Big Mistake Factory is Fivehead's latest snapshot of all-American Austin-based rock and/or roll. It's a fine, fine affair, no big surprise there, and it shows that Hunt's departure from Silver Scooter to focus on his side projects was not a bad decision in the least. I don't hear much that I could compare to the late, great Silver Scooter, which leads one to think that his role in the band, while important, never allowed his full potential to blossom.

But Silver Scooter is in the past, it's time to move on, and Big Mistake Factory is an excellent record of Hunt's growth. True, there are some that will dismiss a good portion of this record as being slightly derivitive. Screw those critics. Sure, a few seconds of a song may sound like Pavement here or Tobin Sprout there, but that's not to say they're not original. They're growing, and this is a nice growth spurt. Not particuilarly lo-fi, not unoriginal, and bring on the Cello---that's a nice touch! There are also some quite lovely little keyboard moments on "young and compliant" and "last vegas stance" has a pretty funny little comedy routine mixed in with the music.

Fivehead are a band that definitly have some interesting days ahead of them Hunt's a growing songwriter, and this album is a great step above his "Goodie the Rat" EP he released earlier this year, and that was a kick-ass release! It's a pretty damn good sign when your newest recording is 100 percent better than your last awesome record.
Definitly a keeper, a smile-inducer.
