I wonder what it would be like to eat in the Restaurant of the Future, knowing that all your moves are being tracked. It’s a restaurant on the campus of the University of Wageningen in the Netherlands that aims to track the eating habits of its visitors, but to a level that, at least for me, is unheard of. It will analyse your decisions of what you eat and drink, and how your behaviour changes given a certain impetus, such as the placement of fresh flowers on your table. Facial recognition systems will decipher your response to eating a particular food. The amount of time you take to select what food to eat is also analysed. The aim is to research all these issues and provide answers to the food industry.
