BUD is a tabletop game concept that synthesizes flavor from a recipe for pre-cooking sampling

The BUD is a tabletop device with a touchscreen and a “printer” that can cook up flavor. Although just a concept for now, the BUD offers a possible kitchen future where flavors can be tried out before anyone invests in the pursuit of a recipe.

The product was designed by Sloman Palovis, a product designer from Lithuania. It is currently competing in the Electrolux’s Design Lab, a yearly concept-driven product design competition that rewards the best ideas with cash prizes and internship positions in the Swedish multinational appliance company.
