The “Cross-modal Glass” is an interactive cup that has capacitive sensors and an accelerometer, which detect specific movements and actions such as the act of drinking, aerating the cup, tilting it, etc. The data collected by the sensors is sent wirelessly to a system that uses them to trigger sounds or activate various actuators.
The device was developed with the aim of being used in performances, works and scientific experiments that explore cross-modal associations (correspondences between the senses). Through these, sound, visual, tactile or olfactory stimuli can modify the sense of taste, as has been demonstrated in numerous publications of empirical psychology.
