Whether you’re vegan or gluten-free, many restaurants today will happily cater to your dietary needs. However, at Sushi Singularity in Tokyo, diners will be treated to an entirely new level of hospitality. To eat at the upcoming restaurant, guests will need more than just a table reservation—they’ll be asked to prepare biological samples that will be used to craft custom 3D-printed sushi.
The concept was created by Open Meals, a Japanese company that fuses science with food to create nutrient-rich meals to suit each customer. Each guest receives a health test kit in the mail so they can provide samples of urine, saliva, and even feces prior to their reservation. Each kit is then sent back to the restaurant where it will be analyzed and made into a “Health ID.” The idea of sending your own bodily fluids in the post might have already put you off your food, but Sushi Singularity is able to use the biodata to craft personalized sushi recipes, filled with ingredients and raw vitamins that will benefit your specific health needs.
As if that wasn’t futuristic enough, the restaurant will produce their sushi using a 3D printer with giant robotic arms. Open Meals debuted their 3D-printed sushi at the South by Southwest Interactive Festival in Austin last year, under the title “Sushi Teleportation.” Here, the restaurateurs showcased how each perfect cube of sushi is not only designed to taste good and benefit your health, but also look like a work of art.
Sushi Singularity is due to open in 2020. In the meantime, check out the Open Meals website for more information.
