Cocoon, the meat and fish maker, wins Electrolux Design Lab 2009

Cocoon, the fish and meat maker by Rickard Hederstierna from Lund Institute of Technology, has been selected as the winner of the Electrolux Design Lab 2009 competition. The announcement for the winner was made on September 24, at 100% Design London. The truly innovative Cocoon resembles a gemstone with a metal accent. The process of growing meat with the Cocoon is very much similar to that of heating popcorn in a microwave. It heats muscle cells identified by RFID signals to prepare pre-packaged meat and fish dishes. These radio frequency identification signals identify the dish and then show the required cooking time. Cocoon is said to be a sustainable response to the world’s growing population. Since this meat maker uses science to create food, it helps reduce the need for intensive farming and fishing. The second and the third place went to Water Catcher (the flying rain catcher and water purifier) and Renew smart steamer respectively.
