Eating in times of digital transformation

How might we design interactions in the context of nutrition in times of digital transformation?
This illustration is part of my master’s thesis where I was asking the question of how digital technology and automation changes our everyday lives and in particular the preparation of food. The potential of social interactions plays an equal role to the aspect of a technical food preparation and nutrition itself.

The visualization shows attention capabilities in different consumption situations with and without smartphone.
