‘Like tasting for the first time’- VR eating debuts in NY

Step aside foams and plant-based food, the cutting edge of food may not even include food.That’s the idea of the Aerobanquets RMX, “a mixed reality art and dining experience,” currently on the menu at New York dining mecca, James Beard House.

In practice, Virtual Reality (VR) eating allows diners to see a VR representation of their food through goggles they wear while dining.

VR, a computer-generated simulation of a three-dimensional image, enables users to immerse.The artist behind Aerobanquets RMX is Italian interdisciplinary artist, Mattia Casalegno. VR eating upends the traditional experience of eating, diners at the Beard House told Reuters.

VR eating has also appeared at Japanese restaurants like, “Tree by Naked.” Aerobanquets RMX itself has already had runs in Seoul and Shanghai.

But according to Mazumdar, the inspiration for VR eating is in fact nearly a century old, and stems from “The Futurist Cookbook,” published in 1932 by Italian activist, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, as a collection of surrealist recipes.
