Knitted meat

Printing a full 3-D steak may prove too difficult and inefficient for the petri dish meat experts, so instead they are suggesting a more feasible option: printing long threads of protein.

Consumers will be able to purchase machines that will weave these protein threads according to preset preferences. Effectively you would be able to choose the size, texture and tenderness and the meat would be made in front of you.

Next Nature says, “Groups of diners can even knit their own sections of a protein scarf, enabling multiple people to share a unique moment.”

I don’t know whether to be excited or be sick.
