Future Fruit

Future Fruit is a 3D interactive modelling system (prototype) used for the creation of new fruits based on fruit development biology.

The prototype is to enable the IFE (Institute for Future Environments) theme of “Growing the Global Bio-economy” by developing fruit inspired by the desire of consumers. We anticipate elevated engagement in purchase and ultimately ‘consumers will eat more nutritious food’.

The system will also allow researches to gain insight into what the public sees as an attractive and desirable fruit for mutation research and the gathering data of what fruit is attractive and desired by the public.

The system is designed to work beautifully on various interfaces and technologies including:

  • Desktop/Laptop machines
  • Multitaction Touch Screens
  • HTC Vive – Virtual Reality
