Arthur C Clarke has (as usual) beaten them to it. In "3001" he describes a thing called an "Autochef" which produces meals on demand. However by then they've lost their taste for meat and regard Frank Poole (a rescued Astronaut from 2001) with some disdain when he remembers the meat of his previous life.

And of course the food replicators had this beat on 60's Trek episodes where they skipped all the messy details and converted energy right to food matter of whatever choices desired (as long as the food data was in the computer's "tapes")...or maybe it was the Jetsons win where both fuel for transportation and food were all conveniently reduced to pills. Utopia if it were not for the push-button-itus maladies of that scene. I will try printed meat when it can have green eggs printed along side it, sam I am.

Why stop at green eggs and ham, if the process can dial the color of programmable food, provided it keep same flavor ;-) the sky is the limit ... LoL

next step is obviously digitizing people and printing them elsewhere, teleporter anyone?

Agriculture is fun. And bringing in some new technology why not? After all we need food to survive.

I personally think that sounds disgusting. Although, the meat I get at McDonald's isn't exactly kosher.

Why don't they grow beluga caviar? I'd try that. Otherwise I'd rather be vegetarian.

Something tells me that a variation on this theme is in our future whether we like the idea or not. Already we have "pink slime" which is meat that's been mechanically chewed off it's host and more or less recreated. We have water and flavoring being injected into meats and who knows what else. If it is deemed safe for human consumption and is less expensive to produce, it will end ina a store near you.

No thanks. Sounds disgusting to be be honest. The pink slime sounds appealing compared to this!
