Melon VR Booth   (+5, -1)  [vote for, against]
Immersive melony education

A coin operated booth about the size of a photo-me booth that can be situated near the fruit and veg aisle in the supermarket. It will use a combination of stereoscopic goggles, odour release technology, tactile feedback gloves and 5.1 surround audio to recreate the experience of buying the perfect melon.

And the experience ends with a virtual overripe melon being cracked over your head, just so you know what that feels like, too.

Someone's on a roll?   Nope .... loose melon.

Perhaps grocery stores could just display an example melon, available for thumping and smelling for comparison to others. Only problem there is people just taking the example melon...

"Isn't it great to see so many men interested in melon education? Just look at that line."
