In a way, people conduct scientific experiments every time they cook and the Domestic Science Machines simply reminds them of this fun fact. Of course, in place of chemicals and test tubes are edible elements and cookware. Yet the latter is being put into question by this project.
The Domestic Science Machines introduce lab equipment into the home in order to create everyday meals and drinks while also doubling as scientific instruments. For instance, a coffee machine is also a functioning spectrometer while a slow cooker can be used to grow DNA. Created by Alex Duffner, a design student at Goldsmiths, University of London, the Domestic Science Machines are nevertheless made out of wood and ceramics to make them more warm and inviting than traditional lab instruments.
