Who’s ready for a little rice protein, pea protein and algae fiber squeezed out of a 3D printer into something that this guy claims resembles a steak? We’ll assume none of you reading at home actually raised your hand, but check this out anyway:
This is a 3D-printed vegan steak. It takes about 10 minutes to print, two minutes to cook, and its inventor hopes the steak can take the place of beef steak because the vegan version is better for the environment. Would you give it a try? pic.twitter.com/yp9MIHTn5I

First up, that thing — we will not call it a steak — is tiny! How long will this contraption take to print a real-sized one?
The portion size is off. If that took 10 mins to print, a realistic portion would take 2 hrs. I’m just going to stick with beef, thank you. https://t.co/5Hlan9CFPi

Or, people can, you know, eat grass the old-fashioned way:
Q: Know what’s made of vegetation and tastes like a delicious steak?
A: An actual steak.
Animals naturally break down the scant vitamins and minerals found in plants through specialized digestion and turn it all into nutrient dense meat!
No need for this 👇🏼! https://t.co/t7TvOXXHfi

This is the future libs want:

But it’s a “hard pass”:
