The mobile ani­mal MRI [Mag­net­ic Res­o­nance Imag­ing] unit scours the coun­try­side look­ing for the most beau­ti­ful exam­ples of cows, pigs, chick­ens and oth­er live­stock. Once locat­ed, the crea­ture is scanned from head to toe, cre­at­ing accu­rate cross-sec­tion­al images of its inner organs. The most inter­est­ing and aes­thet­i­cal­ly pleas­ing exam­ples of anato­my are used as tem­plates to cre­ate moulds for the in-vit­ro meat (we wouldn’t choose to eat the same old bor­ing parts that we eat today). The result is a sat­is­fy­ing­ly com­pli­cat­ed and authen­tic form of food. (via Dress­ing the Meat of Tomor­row < James King)
