Lab-grown leather could be on sale within next five years

Lab-grown leather could be on sale within next five years | 3D Printing and Fabbing | Scoop.it

 

Modern Meadow, a company developing and 3D bioprinting meat and leather products directly from real animal cells received a six-figure seed investment from PayPal cofounder Peter Thiel's Breakout Labs.

 

However research shows that most consumers are reluctant to try cultured meats, and the regulatory approval process could take another 10 years. Recently Modern Meadow disclosed their first goal: it is not on meat, but on lab-grown leather products.

Custom Printed Bodies and the End of the 9-to-5 Job

Custom Printed Bodies and the End of the 9-to-5 Job | 3D Printing and Fabbing | Scoop.it

If a physical object is a software code, then… everyone from an aerospace engineer to an ice sculptor is really a computer programmer creating digital designs.

 

And the market for those designs will be just like today’s market for music, movies, and books. You’ll have the iTunes store, Amazon.com, and other legitimate download vendors on one side of the law, and a thousand fugitive “pirate bays” on the other
