Technology and a desire to improve culinary experience drive each other. For example, check out this Juice ATM in LA. Lately social media has been scattered with videos and images of super cool food inventions-perfect for making us hungry while scrolling through Instagram in the middle of the night. From cakes that look like water to candy sushi.
So I gathered some people here at Skidmore with great ideas for food inventions to demonstrate what could be.
