COCOON Feeding the future

Abstract (Swedish)
The Cocoon project was carried out as an entry to one of the World’s largest design competitions for industrial design students, The Electrolux design lab. The “Cocoon” won the first prize competing with almost 1000. The Cocoon is a sustainable response to the world’s growing population and its desire to consume meat and fish. The Cocoon prepares genetically engineered and pre-packaged meat and fish dishes by heating muscle cells identified by radio frequency identification (RFID) signals and making them grow into muscle tissue. The signals detect the specific dish and then suggest the required cooking time. This process uses science to create food, lifting a burden on the planet by reducing the need for further intensive farming and... (More)

This process uses science to create food, lifting a burden on the planet by reducing the need for further intensive farming and fishing. The negative effects of intense fishing and farming, including the mass transportation of food around the world, clearing of land and distortion of ecosystems, are then negated. (Less)
