In the past decade, there has been a lot of progress in innovative food experiences such as 3D printed food, ingestible sensors, combining robots with food service and eating with augmented reality. So far, these experiences have only involved using technology alongside existing food.
Logic Bonbon provides a “cyber” dining experience that combines the application of logic operations – the basic building blocks of every digital computer – with food ingredients that result in the creation of a liquid-focused dessert.
Logic bonbon systems include a pre-made hollow bonbon with a choice of three different “logic gates” that allow the flow of aromatic liquids into the bonbon.
Users can introduce different liquids into the bonbon simultaneously and the bonbon is filled with different flavor and color combinations depending on which “logic gate” was used. Bonbon also has a transparent top layer that allows users to see their final results.
Food designer turned human-computer interaction researcher, lead author Jialin Deng of Information Technology’s Diligence Game Lab, said the idea behind Logic Bonbon’s development was to use food as an integral part of computational operation.
“Over the course of three months, we tested the system with 10 participants, allowing them to understand, experiment, and ‘play’ with Logic Bonbons, filling it with different flavor combinations that they could consume,” Ms. Deng said.
“Through their interactions with Logic Bonbons, participants logically experience and learn about logic operations and are essentially creating a mini food computer that requires input, performs calculations and various Displaying emoticons and flavors results in different combinations of outputs, allowing the user to experience what type of count ‘flavor’ prefers.”
The co-author of the research, Professor Florian “Floyd’ Mueller, Director of the Exertion Games Lab, said the process of interacting with and understanding computation need not be limited to linear methods.
“Through this project we are showing that food ingredients and interactions with your food can also be a means of introducing people to computer science concepts,” said Professor Müller.
“It would be great to see this research being implemented and developed by creators like chefs, food designers and gastronomists, to present computational concepts in a fun multisensory way and provide experiences where diners ‘execute’ the software.” What the chef has programmed. His food.”
Potential future research building on this project includes developing more complex computational systems made from food to explore how hospitality can help provide unique experiences to diners while supporting the chef’s craft and expertise. can go.
