‘Déguster l’augmenté’ is a collaborative project by Erika Marthins with ECAL (Bachelor Media & Interaction Design) that questions if food could be augmented and technology provide a new dimension to how we experience a meal.
The project expands three desserts, exploring the potential of integrating data information in the most common thing (food) but keeping the experience poetic. A wedding of sound and chocolate – where cake behaves like a music record, poetry embedded in a lollipop and edible robotics in the form of a dessert.
