Food for thought
‘Food Design Probes’ is a research project by Philips. They have developed ideas based on predictions of how we will eat and source our food in 15 to 20 years. And in that vision, they created three concept products: the Nutrition Monitor, the Food Printer and the Biosphere Home Farm.
Why it matters
Innovation is no longer only about forthcoming product development. Does the Food Design Probe project indicate that companies must pioneer wilder more exotic initiatives beyond their own business plan to show they really care about the future?
Beer Map is an e-map of Moscow that shows the distribution of beer brands across the city.
Scientists and university students have developed a 3D food printer. The printer follows commands issued from a computer which only requires three bits of info: the shape of the food, building instructions and food material description. A 3D printer is already in use at the French Culinary Institute in Manhattan and is projected to be in homes within the next 5 years.
