An interesting article:http://tech2.nytimes.com/mem/technology/techreview.html?res=9B00E6DA133BF930A35751C0A9639C8B63Referred to here, with excerpt:http://www.marginalrevolution.com/marginalrevolution/2005/02/paper_sushi.htmlSome more snippets:<<Mr. Cantu said he might use the laser to burn a hole through a piece of sashimi tuna, cooking the fish thoroughly inside but leaving its exterior raw. He said he would also use the laser to create 'inside out' bread, where the crust is baked inside the loaf and the doughy part is the outer surface. 'We'll be the first restaurant on planet Earth to use a class IV laser to cook food,' he said with a grin. >><<'I tell them I want to make food float, I want to make it disappear, I want to make it reappear, I want to make the utensils edible, I want to make the plates, the table, the chairs edible,' Mr. Cantu said, 'I ask them, what do I need to do that?'>><< They have created mockups of his all-in-one utensil, a combination fork, knife and spoon, as well as utensils with pressurized handles that release aromatic vapors. The latest prototype is a utensil with a disposable, self-heating silicone handle that can be filled with liquefied or pureed foods. A carbon-dioxide-based charge heats the food (soup, for example), and the diner squeezes the handle to release it onto a spoon. Mr. Cantu envisions many applications for such a utensil, from military meals to cookouts. >>
