WHAT IS A SUPERFORAGER ?
SuperForager is a project which makes creative use of new technologies to engage people with wild and alternative food sources in their local area focusing particularly on city and urban areas.
SuperForger is an art project, integrated foraging alert and navigation system, designed to encourage foraging in urban areas, featuring wearable’s that alert and direct users of potential foraging sites. The system will incorporate a mobile app, a wearable device and a web program to host foraging data.
Our prototype wearable devices we have been working on which are designed to help people forage. The SuperForager belt rumbles around your waist when wild food is available nearby and a ring that will alert you if other foragers are near by to enable people to forage collaboratively.
