Baby Dough'll I Pepita Neureuter

Design & Social Context, Prof. Ineke Hans, Maciej Chmara Pepita Neureuter

Babydough’ll is a smart incubator for sourdough, inspired by emotional welfare. To start the fermentation process bacteria and a warm surrounding are needed. Bacteria like the ones we carry on our skin. Making the human touch as essential for sourdough as for babies. The temperature of the incubator is calibrated through an app, enabling the user to control the ratio between lactic and acetic acids. And making the organism adjustable to personal preferences of taste and texture. By experimenting with the relationship to food this project wants to raise awareness to the fragility of nature as our food source and ask for new ways of living with what feeds us.
