The Cocoon Cooker isn't just some fancy steamer or something like that. No, it's a machine that actually grows meat and fish from heated animal cells. A-whaaa?
It's a mere design concept, sadly, as we don't have the science of growing animal proteins quite figured out yet. But Electrolux is serious about making it a reality, giving the designer a $US7347 prize and a six-month paid internship at their design centre. Will this someday result in Cocoon-grown steaks? One can only hope. [Daily Mail via Fast Company]
