The flavor of food is not just limited to the sense of taste, but also it changes according to the perceived information from other perception such as the auditory, visual, tactile senses, or through individual experiences or cultural background, etc. We proposed "Gravitamine Spice", a system that focuses on the cross-modal interaction between our perception; mainly the weight of food we perceived when we carry the utensils. This system consists of a fork and a seasoning called the "OMOMI". User can change the weight of the food by sprinkling seasoning onto it. Through this sequence of actions, users can enjoy different dining experiences, which may change the taste of their food or the feeling towards the food when they are chewing it.
