Just Eat: An experiential foodie event in Bristol, UK


On Saturday, I headed across the bridge to Anchor Square for a fun, experiential event with Just Eat.

I love it when food and tech meet, and experimentation is definitely at the heart of my own food pursuits, so this seemed like such an interesting opportunity to find out what's new in food technology.

The Just Eat booths screen your face, using 147 points of the face to determine mood. Then, you're 'prescribed' a meal that will suit your current state of mind.

Matching food to mood is a fascinating premise but one that feels like it could work... Isn't that what comfort food is all about?

Watch the video below to see what mood I was in and what food it recommended for me. 




As you can see on the video, the Emotional Analysis Technology scans the face (that's what all those red dots are about). I was in the mood predicted by the booth (although I always find it difficult to have a lens in my face and not smile!) and I think the recommendations seemed appropriate as I definitely would want to stay in that mood.

The only area that didn't quite work was the recommendation to go for the chicken mezze as I don't eat meat BUT there were a range of options available.

My friend and I both opted for the waffles. Mine came with chocolate and strawberries, and were delicious. We ate them out in the square were we enjoyed watching the world go by on such a beautifully sunny day. The meals were all free as well, which made for a really relaxed and happy atmosphere, with big queues of cheerful passersby waiting their turn.

Do you ever match your meals with your mood? Do you think there's a connection between how you feel and what you want to eat?
