The Future Of Cooking

August 28, 2012 in Daily Bulletin

Evgeny Morozov reviewed some of the food preparation technologies that are being developed:

  • A computer scientist has developed a set of video cameras that can distinguish between different items. If the chef has made a mistake or has otherwise deviated from the original recipe an alarm can sound.
  • Another system uses projectors to provide an augmented reality cooking experience. If it’s time to chop the onions then a virtual mark will appear on the onion telling you where to chop.
  • However these technologies would subtract from, rather than enhance, the cooking experience. In reality cooking is all about experimenting and making mistakes.
