Emerging Technologies


Although many research projects on food environments (e.g. dining tables and dishes) have been proposed recently, there are fewer approaches focused on the act of eating itself. We propose a fork-type instrument, EaTheremin (Eat + Theremin), which enables users to play various sounds by eating foods. Our system has the potential to change the act of eating into practical daily entertainment.
