For his final project at the Royal College of Art's Innovation Design Engineering program, Hannes Harms wonders, "What if there was a way to make food information more visual and track all of our intake? What if there was a way to embed data directly in food?"
His answer: "NutriSmart," a which essentially entails replacing food barcodes with RFIDs, where data—regarding provenance, nutrition, preparation, etc., not to mention allergy information—can be tracked from farm to table.

It's definitely an interesting project, but I wonder how scalable it is: RFID has been at the threshold of mainstream augmented reality for years now without a major breakthrough.
