Welcome to the fruit section. I'm the owner. Here, I will introduce an idea of "lemon&lime" and memories that have triggered the idea.
Memory of Appearance
Why do we have two theme foods, lemon and lime, this time? In fact, it is the point that we can not narrow down to one. Well, I've a question for you. How would you teach if you would like to teach children the difference between lemon and lime?
Perhaps many people would tell the difference in "color", such as lemon is yellow and lime is green. If so, it means that lemon and lime are distinguished and recognized based on the memory of appearance, which is color in this case.
Is this lemon or lime or...?
What if the yellow and green change vaguely, then? Can people distinguish it from lemon or lime?
Here, I've prepared a "Lime-like lemon" which changes its color under various conditions. Let's test how people's perception changes while actually touching it.
This lime turns yellow when touched. Well, yellow means ... this is lemon?
Experiment2: Dip in the water
Let's dip a lemon half in the water. It has turned half green. Since it is half lemon and half lime, let's name it "Lemom" for now.
Experiment3: Drop in the Water
Let's drop a lemon fully in the water. It has changed to green at once. Is this already alime?
Experiment4: Breathe on
Let's breathe on a lime. Only the spot breathed on has turns yellow. I would say that this is sometimes a lime and sometimes a lemon.
How was the experiments? I believe that you have experienced that if the color of a thing changes, the meaning also changes.
Behind the Color Change
This time, I've created "LEMOME?" using a special ink "Metamo Color ©"
produced by Pilot Ink, which can change its color depending on temperature. This ink was produced in 1975 and hs been used for a variety of things such as writing instruments, mugs, glasses, T-shirts, magazines. ※ This art is not a real food. Also, "Metamo Color ©" cannot be used for food products as well as anythong that directly touchs food products.
At the End
Here I've introduced an idea that uses an ink that changes color with temperature to change the meaning that is dependent on the memory of appearance. We are willing to use special technologies to realize ideas like this case. "LEMOME?" is a realized idea. If you would like to use it or commercialize it together, please contact us.
