Justaddwater: Bringing molecular gastronomy home

koz-susani-design-justaddwater-nutrition-ecosystem-designboom-10

The January issue of the popular design magazine Metropolis has a short story about the designed nutrition and flavor system branded “justaddwater.” The designers call this a nutrition ecosystem that adjusts to the needs of the user, recommends and prepares appropriate meals (with the inclusion of flavor pills and fresh ingredients). Its like a strange mix of convenient keurig machine and a responsive nest climate controller. It takes the cooking out of cooking and offers a healthy replacement for precooked meals or fast food. For a restricted diet, it certainly would be helpful. Here is a quote from designboom.com,

‘justaddwater’ is a step toward transferring the food revolution of molecular gastronomy from exotic and high-end restaurants into the home, expanding the trend from elite consumers, to the more mainstream market. its values lie in bringing new appreciation to what we put into our bodies — gratifying one through gastronomic pleasure, while respecting food, its associated rituals and nutritional values. above all, it aims at doing this through a renewed design language, merging the artificial with the natural in a way that is beneficial and does not pose any friction.

The websites below have demonstrations and more information about this future direction in food design. What do you think?
