Your next Dinner May Be Virtual #WearableWednesday  
http://adafru.it/eEM

It sounds crazy, but according to PSFK, Kokiri Lab is working on combining the tricks of molecular gastronomy with virtual reality. Considering most people can’t even imagine gaming without snacks, it just doesn't seem to make sense, but move the nachos aside and listen up. For many people, calories are the enemy, meaning obesity, diabetes or even the danger of allergic reaction. That’s where Project Nourished, as it is called, gets its foundation.

Project Nourished re-examines modern methods of dietary consumption by allowing participants to experience fine dining without concerns for caloric intake or other health related issues.

Imagine me sitting down at a plain table wearing a virtual reality headset. I choose a dining location that best suits my mood–like a vegan cafe in Paris for a Mousse au Chocolat. I pick up a special fork that can react with a motion sensor to know when food is entering my mouth. Suddenly there is the aroma of cream and chocolate and I can feel it in my mouth. Oh wait, I’m at a vegan restaurant, so that’s not even real cream I’m smelling, but it doesn't matter anyway because it’s all virtual. Pretty cool, right?

I’m sure you are with me until you get to the thing that is actually in your mouth. Obviously a sensor can’t trick an empty mouth, and that’s where the hydrocolloids come in–foods like algae, pectin, vegetables, fruits and seeds.

By isolating various flavor compounds and recreating their taste and textural profiles – coupled with virtual reality and aromatic diffusion – we can mimic a surprisingly broad spectrum of foods.

When scientists develop a full quantum computer, the world of computing will undergo a revolution of sophistication, speed and energy efficiency that will make even our beefiest conventional machines seem like Stone Age clunkers by comparison.
