Design Thinking Concept 1- Food pill diets

The "food pill diet" refers to a futuristic concept where all essential nutrients required for sustenance are condensed into a single pill or capsule. These nutrient-dense pills would provide the necessary vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats, and carbohydrates that the human body needs to function optimally. This idea imagines a highly efficient and convenient way of meeting nutritional needs without the need for traditional meals.


Design Thinking Concept 2 - Nutrient rationing systems

Residents access meals from the communal kitchens. They log their meals so that the inventory can be maintained for the entire community of residents. These meals could be either lab-synthesized and mass-produced or grown in vertical agricultural walls (hydroponics) in the residential space.

Design Thinking Concept 3 - Virtual Reality Nutrition (highly dystopian but maybe possible)

With advances in neural interfaces and virtual reality technology, people may become disconnected from their physical supply. Instead of eating real food, individuals connect to virtual reality simulations that recreate the sensory experience of eating. This innovation is treated as a solution to food scarcity and waste.
