Food as prototype for radical atoms


Recent shift from Tangible User Interfaces to Radical Atoms has caused researchers to think of novel ways to seamlessly integrate digital and physical worlds. This paper presents “food” as a material that could be used to develop prototypes for Radical Atoms. A set of food experiments and five prototype deliverables support our vision of using edible materials to create future products that are transformable and reconfigurable.
