Smells of Imagination and Cli-fi
Just thinking about food in a pill form. Can't imagine it being any better than my smoothie that taste like greens regardless of what else I put in it. What if certain food items were no longer available because of overfishing, climate problems, etc. Would we find a substitute or turn to virtual reality experiences or scent machines to give us a whiff of that food we so crave. I'm reading about this scenario now.
"Imagine a world where, say, salmon has become extinct. Maybe you could use a virtual piece of salmon sushi, a salmon-like smell, and a real chunk of some other fish in the middle of a hand roll to give people who’ve never tried it a sense for what it’s like to eat salmon sushi. Or perhaps using scent along with virtual reality could help you eat a healthier diet without feeling that you’re missing out. You might see and smell a juicy cheeseburger while actually chomping on a plant-based patty." Article: Virtual reality and food LINK
Always interesting to imagine a future of possible scenarios.
