    A newcomer is looking to get a cut of the increasingly trendy faux meat market. An Israel-based startup — aptly named Redefine Meat — is hyping high-tech printers that produce plant-based steaks that look eerily like real beef. The company, located south of Tel Aviv in Rehovot, will test-market its “Alt-Steak” at high-end restaurants this year before rolling out its industrial-scale 3-D printers to meat distributors in 2021. “You need a 3-D printer to mimic the structure of the muscle...

    3D printing differs from other methods companies have used for reproducing meat taste and texture. Both Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat use combinations of plant-based proteins, oils and binders, like methylcellulose and potato starch, to achieve a realistic texture for their ground beef and patties — though the texture of ground beef is arguably easier to achieve than that of steak. Atlast Food uses mushroom fibers to emulate animal tissue in its meatless bacon. Whether it be for health, environmental...

    John Milton, the greatest English poet of the 17th century, was also the great champion of press freedom, and “Areopagitica” (1644), his impassioned plea for “unlicensed printing,” begins every course of the history of censorship. So Milton’s pamphlet provides an excellent guide for thinking about whether The New York Times should have published Sen. Tom Cotton’s op-ed, “Send in the Troops.” On the one hand, Milton fills “Areopagitica” with stirring exhortations about the necessity of free thought and speech. “Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and...

    Google’s automated Photos printing service wasn’t long for this world — at least, not in its first incarnation. Droid Life has learned (via The Verge) that Google is shutting down the AI-guided trial service on June 30th. It didn’t say what prompted the closure in a notice to members, but it said it hoped to “evolve this feature” and make it “more widely available.” This isn’t the end, then, even if the service is likely to change. The $8 per...
