Future Canteen / Intelligent system

Future Canteen
Future Canteen

This design proposal aims to reduce the food waste by generating a new way for people to interact with food in the canteen setting, regulating their daily consumption based on calorie burnt and stomach volume. The concept is called Future Canteen, which is a new way that people interact to select the meal in the canteen. By selecting the type of food and slide the bar on the screen, the relevant information about calorie consumption and volume capacity will show on the left side respectively. The food will automatically be prepared for them at the same time with the help of the mechanical arm.
