We have seen 3D printed burritos, human tissue and bone, and other oddities that push the envelope of our imagination coming out of 3D printers. Perhaps it is time to take food printing to the next level. A start-up wants to create 3D printed meat to fill the human craving for animal protein without continuing to take an environmental toll on the planet. According to Cnet, billionaire Peter Thiel is directing between $250,000 to $350,000 from his philanthropic foundation toward Missouri-based Modern Meadow to create the bio-printed meat. The company hopes to use the same technologies developed to create medical-grade tissues to bring food to the world’s dinner tables (or barbecues).
