In general, when you want to eat some sushi, all you’ve got do is either make a reservation or even just make a quick phone call to order take away. It doesn’t get much more complicated than that. However, when it comes to Sushi Singularity restaurant, things are done slightly differently. In fact, so much so, that believe it or not, you actually need to provide them with some of your bodily fluids. The innovative restaurant of the future is planned to open in 2020 in Tokyo, Japan. The restaurant will be taking samples of anyone that wants to attend two weeks prior to their visit, including their urine, their saliva, and yes, even their feces.

Sushi Singularity will then take the samples in order to be analyzed, and in turn, will tailor each meal to match up to the nutritional requirements of each unique diner.  The design studio responsible for the new restaurant believes that hyper-personalized foods are the future of food and that eventually, we will all have our own personalized health ID. As though hyper-personalized food wasn’t already futuristic enough, the food will also be made using a 3D printer, as well as a CNC machine.

“Hyper-personalisation will become common for future foods. Based on DNA, urine and intestinal tests, people will each have individual health IDs,” said Open Meals. “This identity is analysed, and nutritional matching is performed to match nourishment needs with biometrics, thus the person is automatically provided with the optical diet,” explained the brand. One company examines a sample of urine to figure out the nutrition status of your body and the other tests gut flora and figures out which food would improve your gut conditions,” Open Meals told Dezeen.
