Soon we may be solving problems with meat printers.

If a new technology gets up and running shops may one day be offering succulent burgers that have been printed.

It's a short step from commercial printing to home printing, so you never know - we might have to start a new food-printing help forum.

If they come from stem cells - will that make them suitable for vegetarians ?

Depends on wether or not you reason to be vegetarian is a purely an animal life right thing.

I like the last line in the article:

"So in the future, more cows may be able to roam the fields without having to fear the slaughterhouse."

Having tea perhaps? Or thinking about their next holiday.

Recently saw a huge printer in a posh school with Bob Marley written on it. I asked why and was told because it's always jamming, glad to see someone had a sense of humour.

The obvious jokey aspect of this aside, there is a serious attempt here to push the boundaries of technology further. Printing solid objects has become commonplace - you can now order an electric guitar that will be printed for you in your chosen colour combination for instance.

Printing food has intriguing possibilities, and should the technology mature in time it might revolutionise the lives of people who live and work in isolated locations - polar research stations for instance.

"...printing food has intriguing possibilities, and should the technology mature in time it might revolutionise the lives of people who live and work in isolated locations - polar research stations for instance."

The future potential successful colonization of the planet Mars might be achieved by 'way out' [wacky] technological developments like this one and others.

PS. Square [slice] sausage [A4 or letter size] would be a good template to use.
