If I knew it wouldn't be innovative. Let's say 100% produced in a bioreactor as a good target. The only input after initial DNA load would be water and electricity. It should treat (clean, purify, etc) the water. It should work in micro/zero gravity. I'd like to own it but they will likely want it to be leased, so the money keeps rolling in. I'd like RF to set up a system so I/we are able to donate these to needy people as well.
Overall, I'm saying I want a big focus on the Powder (or a new form factor meant for folks like the initial backers, 100%ers). I know they aren't neglecting it, I just want more focus on it. I want hipster sales profits to mostly go towards more R&D, not the SV fat cats.
Here's some other ideas, some more innovative than others:
How about custom blends where you can specify macro and vitamin and mineral amounts? Built to order in an automated factory.
And how about shipping to the EU and Asia, with South America to follow?
Drone delivery (including to the wilderness) would help my nomadic existence. Reasonably priced Powder vending machines (at airports to start) would also help. GNC type stores would be an easy win, too.
RF provided flavor addons (in powder and liquid forms). Especially savory.
Published research on the health and environmental impacts of this diet.
Information on products available the day they are announced. Still waiting on glycemic data...
A web site for users to upload health metrics and diet journals. Make the data publicly available for scientific purposes, even though it would be imperfect.
An early access/beta program.
Articles by RF's nutrition experts on their opinions of ideal nutrient quotas, absorbability of sources, etc. Powder Release Notes with more information on why/how changes were made, like they used to be.
A list of all ingredient sources (companies) for Powder.
Custom subscription intervals (i.e., every two weeks). I know this has cost implications for their processing and shipping.
Longer shelf life!! 30 years would be a nice end goal. Any interim improvement would be nice.
Time-release so you can consume a more nutrient dense version once a day, along with an appetite suppressant, but still have consistent energy throughout the day. Perhaps the nutrients can be stored/released/refilled in nanites.
How about adding chemicals that makes your body think it's experiencing physical exercise? Tearing of muscles, etc. back to the nanites, perhaps.
Nootropic mixers. CBD, THC and psychonauticals should be included.
In the mean time, let's get some better packaging. Bulk, better recyclability, greater ease of use/scooping, better resealing, etc. A tour video of the mystery manufacturer would be nice, too. People these days like to understand how their food is made.
