Jean-Georges’ Vegetables, Printing Hair & Vegan Muscle

 

• It seems that the entire design world will be fundamentally changed by 3D printing technologies, and the replication of animal hairs and fibers is next. As i-D reported, one of the more advanced innovations that has a fashion application is MIT’s Cilllia project, where the ability to print incredibly dense collections of strands, like hair, as small as 50 microns will make replicating pelts, feathers, furs and hairs infinitely more realistic, and customizable. One of the more challenging aspects of making faux fur look realistic is the blunt end. Animal hairs naturally taper off to a fine point, and with Cilllia, this is possible. According to the Cilllia website, “now there is a chance that less animals will be harmed for their fur just by using the Cilllia project.”

Milk Without Mammals

I’ve gotta be honest, I love the name. Perfect Daylike many other emerging cellular-agriculture companies, is making something that we’re used to getting from animals, more efficiently, more responsibly and –without actually using animals. The name Perfect Day is a reference to a Lou Reed song that dairy cows were discovered to be soothed by. What’s even more soothing to dairy cows? I’ll take a guess and say it’s not being forcibly impregnated and having your babies torn away repeatedly so humans can drink your milk instead.  According to New Harvest, a leader in strategies to reinvent the way we make animal products:

“Their milk is crafted without the help of a single cow. It’s not only delicious, it’s more nutritious and sustainable than factory farmed milk. And it tastes just like the real thing. Plus, it’s the perfect base to craft other beloved dairy products, like cheese, yogurt, ice cream, and butter.

“Using centuries-old fermentation techniques and well understood food technologies, they make dairy-free milk without chemicals, hormones, lactose, or other nonsense.”

The milk is also far more sustainable and scalable than raising dairy cattle.

What do you think? Would you drink milk identical to cows milk if it didn’t come from a cow?
