Wired recently published an article titled ‘7 Disruptive Foods Changing the Way We Eat’. Included is an interesting piece about how nuclear nanorobots could essentially make food unnecessary—therefore making the term ‘foodie’ even more inane.
According to the article:
The nanobots would patrol every cell in the human body and supply energy to cells directly so that it needn’t come from food.
This would only replace food’s caloric aspect, so we’d still need to take vitamin and nutritional supplements in order to provide the body with new matter as cells die off.
If these ‘nanobots’ were actually successful in making food obsolete—would it send foodies scrambling for something new to call themselves? How many megapixels will their camera need in order to get nanobots posted to their blog? Most importantly, is ‘nanodiggity.com’ taken?
