What if this device could change your eating habits? | Katharina Unger | TEDxVienna
Can you imagine having bugs in your home or growing food on your plastic scraps? Livin Studio’s projects, like an insect breeding device and a plastic digesting prototype amongst others, have stirred up ideas on how an interface between nature, technology and people could look like. As certain design guidelines are followed, people become more comfortable with the implementation of such products in their homes that will ultimately reduce costs and environmental impact, as well as improve living quality.
Katharina grew up raising chickens, cows and horses. Noticing the dramatic state of our food system while living in Hong Kong, she is now determined to “design nature for humans”, her first product is a desktop insect farm.
