Open Meals wants to use biodata to 3D-print a personalized sushi meal for each diner.

Japanese company Open Meals wants to create 3D-printed sushi catered to individual customers not based on what the order on a menu—but what their saliva, urine, and stool samples say. Austin News Site KXAN says that Open Meals plans to use "biological samples" to create sushi at an individual level, based on each person's nutritional requirements. The company envisions a system of robotic arms that serves diners sushi from a 3D printer.

The planned restaurant project called Sushi Singularity will be reservation only. Potential diners will receive a "health test kit" in advance and allow them to send the restaurant vials of waste and fluid samples. From this biodata, Sushi Singularity will cater meals to incorporate nutrients that are missing from the individual's diet. The company plans to launch its project next year.
