Modern Meadow CEO on the Merits of 3D Printed Meat - Core77

Modern Meadow CEO on the Merits of 3D Printed Meat - Core77 | 3-D Printing Stories | Scoop.it

"Because commercial meat production is a highly resource-intensive process, and Modern Meadow argues that their product is a more sustainable way to provide protein."

Beth Robinson's insight:

Ew. Clever and potentially useful, but viscerally ew. But then, I can't see eating Rocky Mountain oysters either. I also keep thinking of the marketing effort and storytelling spin required to keep this from being the next "pink slime".

"The 3D pen makes 3D printing come alive in the easiest way we know how, in a way so intuitive that you could teach your grandparents how to use it."

Beth Robinson's insight:

I must admit to being a bit mystified as to what anyone other than an artist would use this FOR, but Future Lab does a great job of pointing out why it's cool.

With LAYWOO-D3 Filament, You Can 3D Print in Wood. Kind of. - Core77

With LAYWOO-D3 Filament, You Can 3D Print in <I>Wood</I>. Kind of. - Core77 | 3-D Printing Stories | Scoop.it

"Thingiverse denizen Kaipa has created a partially wooden filament for 3D printers. Called LAYWOO-D3, the stuff is 40% recycled wood with the rest of it being a binding polymer"

Beth Robinson's insight:

This new material could be most interesting for the possibilities it opens up for further processing once the printing is complete.
