nutrient supply & health care by bacteria

We eat genetically modified food containing less nutrients than the original forms. On the other hand, we enjoy drinks enriched with minerals and vitamins. When we suffer from deficiency symptoms we take pills to adjust our vitamin and nutrient balance. Are there better ways of nutrient supply and health care?

The object family Subliminals shows a prospective alternative to the common nutrient supply by pills or other medicines in a future of nutrient-poor food. The objects satisfy your daily requirement of minerals – produced by bacteria. Nutrients can now be ingested in a new incidental way constantly while still being controllable and visible. The dosing of different minerals is controlled by the objects themselves through the size of their coated surfaces.
