5. Jessica Herrington argues that Augmented Reality opens us to new ways of enjoying our food. In this piece for Medium publication One Zero, she points to AR experiences by artists such as Robbie Conceptuel, which allow you to "become the food" via his "Bubble Tea" Instagram filter that transforms your face into a trendy drink. Similarly, the "Papaya" filter turns you into tropical fruit. Meanwhile, AR company Kabaq has partnered with Snapchat to offer users the ability to view a Domino's pizza in AR, then order that pizza online. Experiencing digital food in AR lends itself well to sensory science research, says Harrington, explaining that our brains are wired to experience "visual hunger," defined as the desire to view beautiful images of food. This leads to an increase in ghrelin, the hunger hormone that prepares our body to eat. AR can also be used, she adds, to experiment with how we perceive food structure and texture, such as crispness, flakiness, or softness. Some scientific research groups have even replicated basic taste sensations through a "digital taste interface," which applies electrical and thermal stimulation to the tongue."– ONE ZERO
