In this week’s episode of The Food Tech Show, we talk about those new contactless systems and compare them to a technology from long ago: the automat.
Yep, that old-school idea born in New York City a century ago is back (or maybe it never left?), showing up everywhere from restaurants to condos.
Jenn Marston waxes nostalgic about the automat and other concepts that seem to be getting a second look as the food system looks to reinvent itself in the wake of COVID-19.
We also talk about these stories in today’s podcast:
- What reducing food waste means rethinking the fridge
- A new technology that lets you control your cooking appliance with your gaze
- How companies like Brightseed are using AI to create entirely new food products
