Celebrity burgers a reality

Back in September last year, I explored some possibilities that the “Stem Cell burger” opened up.  Perhaps the most far-fetched idea I had was to produce meat from cloned celebrity stem cells.

It seems this idea wasn’t as absurd as I thought.  A new company has launched called Bitelabs, claiming they will produce celebrity-derived meats in salami-form.

So is it a hoax or a real company?  The internet isn’t quite sure what to make of it.  My previous post covered the feasibility of such an endeavor, but the ethics remains a gray zone. In the meantime, I fully support the discussion, and I applaud Bitelabs’ understated strategy.  Personally I’d be interested in trying a cloned meat product, regardless of who the donor was.
