Designing Playful Interfaces in support of 3D Food Printing – Presented by Deb Polson, Design Lab, Queensland University of Technology

Designing Playful Interfaces in support of 3D Food Printing – Presented by Dr Deb Polson, Design Lab, Queensland University of Technology at the 3D Foodprinting Conference Asia-Pacific Edition, 2 May 2017, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.

At the Queensland University of Technology we have created a virtual BioLab for you to access tools to create futuristic fruit based on actual plant development processes before sending it to a 3D Printer. Future Fruithas been made with game development tools and with a Design Fiction (DesFi) approach which involves visualising future scenarios to design and build testable prototypes inspired by  emerging scientific ideas and technological advancements. Using such interfaces and techniques we can potentially deliver vital nutrients to people living in remote locations or in places where certain deficiencies are identified.
