The new conceptual designs by Phillips Design are the future of food. With the Phillips Design food concepts, we’ll be able to change foods into different shapes and consistencies, scan them for nutritional value, and create a biosphere for farming in the comforts of our living rooms.
What the Phillips Design food concepts have achieved are interesting previews of what we can do with food in the near future. The company’s rapid-prototyping food probe, for instance, allows the user to reformat foods while maintaining or changing nutritional content. For instance, you could change a carrot into foam or Parmesan cheese into something akin to spaghetti.
Another of the Phillips Design food concepts is the scanning wand which analyzes an individual’s dietary needs and then allows the user to scan foods that would correspond to those needs. As for the home farming system, it would help alleviate the stress of not knowing where your food comes from.
“People are increasingly concerned about how their food has been manipulated and processed, genetic modification, global shortages, environmental degradation through monoculture, the distance food travels before reaching their plates and many other related issues,” says Clive van Heerden, Senior Director of design-led innovation at Philips Design.
