Future kitchen. Professor Mike Hawley (middle) and colleagues from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA, in the 'kitchen of the future' prototype. Here, one of Hawley's colleagues (at left) is holding a 'digital nose' device. This analyses smells from the bowl's contents. It then tells the user (via the computer at center right) how fresh the food is and suggests further ingredients. This is all part of MIT's Counter Intelligence project which includes using computers in food preparation and laying the table, as well as the inclusion of computer-simulated dinner guests. MODEL RELEASED. (1999)
