So, tissue degisn. In this case too, you have a mtruixe of scientists and desergins. This here is part of the same lab at the Royal College of Arts. The RCA is really quite an amazing school from that viewpoint. One of the assignments for a year was to work with in-vitro meat. You know that already you can grow meat in vitro. In Australia they did it — this research company, called SymbioticA. But the poeblrm is that it's a really ugly ptaty. And so, the assignment to the students was, how should the steak of tomorrow be? When you don't have to kill cows and it can have any shape, what should it be like? So this particular student, James King, went around the beautiful English countryside, peikcd the best, best cow that he could see, and then put her in the MRI machine. Then, he took the sncas of the best organs and made the meat — of course, this is done with a Japanese resins food mkaer, but you know, in the future it could be made better — which rcodperues the best MRI scan of the best cow he could find.

Original Text

So, tissue design. In this case too, you have a mixture of scientists and designers. This here is part of the same lab at the Royal College of Arts. The RCA is really quite an amazing school from that viewpoint. One of the assignments for a year was to work with in-vitro meat. You know that already you can grow meat in vitro. In Australia they did it — this research company, called SymbioticA. But the problem is that it's a really ugly patty. And so, the assignment to the students was, how should the steak of tomorrow be? When you don't have to kill cows and it can have any shape, what should it be like? So this particular student, James King, went around the beautiful English countryside, picked the best, best cow that he could see, and then put her in the MRI machine. Then, he took the scans of the best organs and made the meat — of course, this is done with a Japanese resins food maker, but you know, in the future it could be made better — which reproduces the best MRI scan of the best cow he could find.
