Jackfruit Inc. Muscle tissue pack. by Demmmmy Jackfruit Inc. Muscle tissue pack. by Demmmmy
An idea I've had for a long time - so I modeled it quickly in Maya.

To avoid the assaults and accusations of Animal Rights activists, several companies turned to other ways to provide meat.
Some tried producing non-meat alternatives, which while financially viable, never really caught on as the replacement meat. Others grew designer animals which lacked capacity for pain and produced large quantities of muscle. There is, however, issues with hormones contained within the meat.
Jackfruit inc, a biotech company, took the approach of stretching muscle tissue across two bars and using electrical pulses to cause it to contract. An extension of this technology resulted in small meat 'packets', which are fastened to an elasticated conveyor belt and take a matter of weeks to grow to an edible food source.

The company is also collaborating with prosthetics industries to provide natural muscle for basic artificial limbs, and synthetic pets.

The company founder, Whilton Jack, an eccentric man, uses these packets in his prosthetic leg, and was quoted as saying:
"Sometimes I like to take the pack from my prosthetic and use it for dinner. I like to eat my leg".
