Digitized Cuisine

A shift in diet leads to foods that are digitally created and modified

Implications - The global population is set to reach new peaks in the coming decades, which is causing major concerns surrounding food supplies and preparation. As international diets continue to become more varied and accustom to preference, innovations that allow for custom meal preparation are satisfying the want for products that are aesthetically appealing, familiar in design and quick to obtain. The utilization of 3D printing and laser etching is pushing control out of the hands of brands and into those of consumers as the technology reaches affordable price points. The ability to share digital "recipes" on the Internet could mark the beginning of the dissolution of fast food and formal dining.
