The September issue of Wallpaper* explores the future of food (see also the associated slideshow) as imagined by Philips, the consumer electronics company, including a Nutrition Monitor scanning wand that can measure the nutritional value of food paired with a sensor you ingest to achieve optimal health, a Biosphere Home Farm that functions as its miniature ecosystem (fish, plants, etc.), and food printers that uses principles of molecular gastronomy to make food into any shape or consistency. The food printer is remarkably similar to the cell packages concepts designed by Matt Brown.

Nevertheless, Phillips says it's all possible within the next 15 to 20 years. Wallpaper* also posted some lovely animated videos that explain the concepts more fully:

    is food just technology? If so, let me mourn the death of slow food in America.
