Glasgow: Restaurant claims to be 'World’s first' interactive 3D dining experience

Long time Scottish institution The Ubiquitous Chip is set to combine food with interactive 3D art for the first time.

The unique visual arts and food spectacular will take place in Scotland during March 2011 for 100 diners per night and will be repeated in October.
Each course of the menu, designed by restaurateur Colin Clydesdale, will be reflected by the interactive art installations. The menu showcases the finest locally sourced Scottish foods.
Combining the talents of foremost Scottish artist, and longtime friend of the Ubiquitous Chip, Alasdair Gray and digital artist Debs Norton, Ingr3dients will see diners interacting with a host of art installations and witnessing the exclusive unveiling of Alasdair Gray’s first digital mural.
Guests will go into the courtyard restaurant over an interactive seabed amongst shell fish and other sea life as they enter. During the meal a flock of wood pigeons will fly overhead.
3D visual spectacles include a seascape scene featuring leaping salmon and appearances of 'Morag', the Highland Cow who will be ambling in the middle of the courtyard.
Throughout dinner diners will be alerted to the improbable appearance of the virtual stars of the evening by cues from the ambient soundscape, complemented by the specially devised menu.
Each evening digital artist Debs Norton will create a live mix of 3D images in accordance with the diners' reactions and other spontaneous factors, ensuring that every experience is totally unique.
Commenting on Ingr3dients, restaurateur Colin Clydesdale, said: “We wanted to do something truly unique to celebrate The Chip's 40th anniversary. The concept behind Ingr3dients includes many of the things for which The Chip is celebrated: visual art, locally sourced Scottish food and a focus on the whole dining experience. In keeping with our reputation as leading the way in the Scottish restaurant scene, this ground breaking collaboration will explore the relationship between 3D art and food for the first time. It is ambitious. We can't wait to see the reaction from our customers.”  
Ingr3dients will cost £49.95 per person (not including wine).
Ingr3dients will run Monday to Thursday from 7th - 31st of March and around 100 guests will be taken through the experience each evening. Ingr3dients will be repeated again from October 3rd.
