The World's First Lab-Grown Meat Burger Tastes Terrible (Surprise!)
The world's premier artificial, $300,000 3D-printed burger
BBC correspondant Pallab Ghosh was present at the meat's inaugural tasting event, and has been live-tweeting the tasters metered reaction to the lab-grown meat.
Hanni says she texpected texture to be softer. It's close to meat but not juicy- Pallab Ghosh (@BBCPallab) August 5, 2013
There's no fat in the burger so tasters say not the right flavour- Pallab Ghosh (@BBCPallab) August 5, 2013
Both want ketchup!- Pallab Ghosh (@BBCPallab) August 5, 2013
If 3D-printed meat really is the future of the burger industry, it looks like it still has a long road ahead before it can climb out of the uncanny valley of almost-meat. In the meantime, questionable dollar menu meat is probably still the way to go. [Pallab Ghosh via Engadget]
