Most of our information and even some of our public transportation happens within subterranean tubular shafts, so 'Foodtubes' may be onto something with its proposal to use the same method for conveying nourishment.

'Foodtubes' estimates that its sustainable system will lead to an 8% reduction of CO2 emissions with the decrease in truck transportation between farms and grocery stores. I can only imagine the complex network of extra tunnels and pipelines below cities! The only question is whether or not society's ready to eat from capsules!
