ABOUT PROJECT NOURISHED
“Project Nourished” is an intense gastronomical VR experience, where you eat and drink in a whole new way by hacking vision, gustation, olfaction, audition and touch—with or without caloric intake. Project Nourished makes food more sustainable by utilizing ingredients such as algae, yeast and insects. The technology can even be used to preserve foods for the future generations by creating chemical and digital carbon copies; in case of overfishing or natural disaster.
