Printable Food To End Hunger? No.


jetsons13NASA and printable food. I can’t stop thinking about the Jetsons enjoying their utopian food pills. Which never happened, of course, because it’s a dumb idea.

Meaning as real food becomes more scarce, people will happily eat printed food over no food.

Ok, I agree that people would eat printed food rather than go hungry. But I don’t understand how printed food will solve hunger.

CBS Detroit

ANN ARBOR (WWJ) – With March Madness Parties and the Annual Hashbash many revelers will be enjoying the weekend festivities on the campus of U of M.

And as WWJ’s Kathryn Larson reports – one woman is at the helm of ensuring everything goes off without a hitch.

Saturday evening, U of M’s Public Safety Spokeswoman Diane Brown will be … “Working through all of this,” she laughed.

“This is not a football Saturday – so some of those street parking prohibitions do not apply this weekend so we would just encourage people to park in a legal parking space,” said Brown. “Many city streets are metered and you can park that way.”

Brown said her public safety officers will be out in full force — making sure visitors park in the right places.
