• Samsung Believes Virtual Reality Can Change Fine Dining

by Mindy Yang

Samsung paints a wonderful picture of how head-worn VR can elevate the dining experience. Instead of just seeing Tuscany on your plate, imagine looking around and seeing flowers and vineyards as far as your eyes can go. Then, with a change of plates, you can be transported to the depths of the ocean as you gorge on the best seafood the world has to offer:

“By using Samsung Gear VR, restaurants can take the already sensory experience of dining to a new level. While there is a wow factor to using this cutting-edge technology, the impact of virtual reality is a natural fit for restaurants that want to create a complete experience around a meal, not just serve a plate of food,” said Samsung.

It’s true that getting ahead in the restaurant game requires a lot of forward thinking but should VR be the way to go? Many restaurants, including greats such as El Bulli where Paco Roncero, has re-introduced wonder to food. If VR can give diners the same novelty, it could definitely play a role in modern fine dining as long as it doesn’t tamper with the fine motor skills required in aiming a steak knife.
