The Mother Board is a salad bar located in Sunnyvale, California in Silicon Valley, home to the world’s largest high-tech companies, and thousands of tech startups. Tech is altering the way people think, speak, act, behave, and even eat. The Mother Board acts as the running engine that runs the surrounding area by fueling the people. The ingredient to a healthy running system begins in the interior (of the body and device).

Its systematic behavior is imitated in the salad bar to enhance life experiences through health. In a typical motherboard, information enters through the input which directs the information to certain areas on the motherboard. The CPU fetches information from memory and executing the instructions. This system is implemented in The Mother Board.
