3ders.org - Lab-grown leather could be on sale within next five years | 3D Printing news | Big and Open Data, FabLab, Internet of things | 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.

Creation Engine: Autodesk Wants to Help Anyone, Anywhere, Make Anything | Wired Business | Wired.com | Big and Open Data, FabLab, Internet of things | Scoop.it
Autodesk once made tools just for engineers and architects. Now it wants to help everyone make anything.

 

Carl Bass is president and CEO of Autodesk, a publicly traded software company worth $7 billion. But he’s also an amateur woodworker, and he takes his hobby seriously. Last fall, for example, when searching for just the right wood to take back to his workshop, Bass and two fellow enthusiasts—his CTO, Jeff Kowalski, and a Berkeley, California-based carpenter named Gene Agress—flew to Portland, Oregon, to meet with one of the world’s most secretive dealers in rare timber. The dealer picked up the three men in an Audi SUV, then sped into the countryside, mentioning along the way that the vehicle was, in fact, bullet-resistant.
