  1. Dear Carlos,

    I just realised that u have already set a format for the name of the post.
    I will figure it out on how to change mine.


  2. Maybe you could expand on the idea of the food pyramid idea to actually start growing the food, as well as storing it. I also like the idea of paying attention to often neglected or ignored parts of the body like the feet and improving well-being through these attentions.

    The WHO defined health as “a resource for everyday life, not the objective of living”. Maybe that means that the designs should be more subtle redesigns of everyday objects that in use provide apparently incidental health benefits. It seems to me that the person who owns and uses all of these devices has enough neuroses about healthy to make themselves unhealthy.

    May also be worth looking at exercise along with nutrition and massage/relaxation, but maybe that is covered in the reflect-xology game? I like the idea of education and reinforcing of the benefits of healthy living via the technology that is often blamed for poor health and education.

    “We will measure the quality of architecture by its ability to represent the interest and programs of others. ”
    What about discussions about healthcare taking place, US emphasis on private healthcare vs UK’s perhaps slowly unravelling NHS service vs somewhere like Sweden which still has a very strong free healthcare culture … Who’s responsible for one’s health? There are many tricky questions about issues like smoking, bad diets, and other harmful practices, who picks up the cost/ issues of responsibility? Then there’s the whole issue of preventative measures, diet related issues cost the NHS £6billion per year, imagine if this money was spent tackling the root cause rather than the symptoms, like the food pyramid fridge, it builds up an understanding of one’s dietary preferences/peculiarities and engages in an ongoing dialogue with the user to make incremental healthier dietary changes….
