Lyssna is a diegetic prototype in the form of a hearing aid for your refrigerator that aims at reintegrating the lost aspects of food. It is attached to the refrigerator door and rotates every once in a while to get your attention. When it is moved across the door of your fridge, you hear the sounds of the food inside. Lyssna creates a unique sound for every food item that changes over time, representing the state of freshness and accompanying flavor of the food. You can explore the contents of your fridge, get inspired, and compose a personal symphony of tastes.
