PETA Offers Million Dollar Prize

PETA is offering the prize for the first person to produce viable test tube meat, that's meat that didn't come from an autonomous animal.

 

When I first read this I was surprised to see PETA finally getting it right.  The prize is a great way to solve a problem, especially one that requires a significant use of technology and invention.

 

The vision I foresee are genetically modified cows who's brain function is limited to autonomous functions, while they are still calf's they are then fitted with a cybernetic brain that has them eat, exercise, and which can be remotely controlled with a joystick as needed. 

 

It will be interesting to see how PETA would respond to the soul-less cow, as it is unlikely they will differ in appearance.  The cuddly factor will still exist in cyber animals.
