Pink Dragon Fruit!

pink pitaya dragon fruit

Wow…OMG that looks soooo good! I personally loooove eating dragon fruits, but I’ve never seen a flamming pink one like the one above! As much as I crave dragon fruits, this picture made me mentally drool. Not only does an image like this capture my attention, curiosity, and thoughts, but it ignites my tastebuds. I’ve always wondered how to extract that magical element in food into product design. Sure, there’s amazing packaging, housewares, utencils, glasses, and items that surround food, but how can product designs in say laptops, pens, chairs, cars, etc make me drool like food does? I’m not sure, but I do believe in the idea of sense being enhanced or triggered by the other senses…like hearing through images, or seeing through touch.  Here’s a pretty cool thesis bases on that idea called “Synesthesia”.

    thanks for the link…I’ll be posting more on food from some recent food blogs i’ve been following….. I’ve found some incredible ones….I’ve always told ppl that everything is getting digitalized…everything but food, hence the good ol food that we know of stays supreme…okie…back to some visual eating…i’ve got a few ideas for food sites/blogs/services down the pipeline…perhaps I’ve get some funding one day and make it happen.
