A common perception about exercise and chocolate is that they do not gel together. A healthy body should do regular exercise and should not indulge in sweet temptations like chocolate. I break this perception by presenting a provocative system called EdiPulse. EdiPulse turns self-monitored data from a physical activity into 3D printed chocolate treats. These treats come in a variety of form and offer a playful enjoyable reflection on one’s data and active life. As such, this work underscores two related emerging fields of interest: quantified self and food printing and blends them together to create a seamless experience. In this talk, I will take you through a journey from ‘Sweat’ to ‘Sweet’ and offer insights on designing playful experiences around food and through exciting new technologies like food printing to support the experience of being physically active.
