Would You Eat This Meat?



Ok, folks, let's make us some meat! :D

From the website Green Blorge:

"Cocoon, the fish and meat maker by Rickard Hederstierna from Lund Institute of Technology, has been selected as the winner of the Electrolux Design Lab 2009 competition. The announcement for the winner was made on September 24, at 100% Design London..



Similar to heating popcorn in a microwave, Cocoon prepares genetically engineered and pre-packaged meat and fish dishes by heating muscle cells identified by radio frequency identification (RFID) signals. The signals detect the specific dish and then suggest the required cooking time. This process uses science to create food…


Apparently the genetically modified prepackaged food, can be “grown” in the cocoon during cooking, like microwave popcorn. The process isn’t like the food generators on Star Trek. It doesn’t create food out of thin air, nor will it clone food from natural fish and meat sources. If it isn’t the genetically modified meat or fish, you can’t grow it." --

Oy! Somebody pass me some fish molecules and fire up the replicator! lol!

Anyway, I know that this is a great biological, technological marvel and an omen of what's to come in the future, but seriously, how do you feel about eating technologically replicated meat? Heck, in a way, it's not that far of a stretch given some of the processed crap we already eat, right?
I, personally, am on the fence about it. I just really feel a whole lot better knowing that my sushi was swimming around freely and hanging out with other fish of the sea before it ended up on my plate!

What's your take on this? (Vegans, save the sermon. We already know your shpiel!) ;) Carnivores, what say you?

Ack! It must feel like eating some radioactive meat. No thanks. I'd prefer it grilled. :D

Hello Diva,
Hope you're doing fine.
Well I will never eat that meat but hope its showing us the future.
Nice post anyway...I take interest in science too much.

Thanks

Definitely a no no for me. Although I am not to the extreme case yet as to looking at all the packaging to determine what I am buying in the supermarket, I do want to stay away from GE food as far as possible (if they are being labeled as GE). That brings me to the point, should all GE food be clearly labeled so people have a choice to make? It will be challenging choice considering all the processed craps that we are already having. There is a saying for Chinese that illnesses come from what we put in the mouth. I believe there is a great deal of truth from this saying. Now we not only have to watch what we put in our mouths, we need to know how they were being produced too.

I think I am a little bit scairted of that meat!

Azure Islands Designs said...

Wow...never heard of that before! My first instinct is to say I'll stick with what I think I know...that is too new for my liking!

Thats a big NO. LOL I am a carnivore 100%. I love grilled fish, beef steak and pork BBQ. But if things go like this well I have no choice but to shift into a vegetarian.

I don't like this scientific idea, God already gives us a normal food too eat, I think its not normal...

Gotta give the guy props for inventing this thing, though!

I'm scared of that meat too, Daisy!
;)

Sounds like cancer in a bag.

Is it really that hard to cook a piece of meat?!

I would never eat this junk.

As the popularity of processed food increases, so does the waistline of the average American.

It looks like a pretty tasty meat, but I'm doubt to put myself as a specimen here, Diva!

It looks like a pretty tasty meat. But I'll never eat it. Because i don't like these scientific idea. Anyway thanks a bunch for sharing. Keep blogging.

Well since it seems to be only for "processed or pre made" meats then I won't need one.

But really what the hell? The cocoon? Too funny.

Bigger Arms said...

What an odd invention. I'd have to pass on eating my food like that, I think. But who knows? It could be delicious.

Driih said...

The microwave oven will be obsolete then.
