Meat and Three takes a look at cutting edge technology, the power and pace of globalization, and breakthrough accomplishments and discoveries in a new mini series about the future of food. In the next three episodes, we’ll pose our most pressing questions to NASA scientists predicting how people will eat in space as well as activists fighting for a more equitable tomorrow.
Today, we explore technology and the budding metaverse. While the “metaverse” today is not the full-fledged virtual reality that sci-fi portrays, we already see how data, a digital economy, and virtual experiences are gradually taking their places in the food industry. Grab your cryptocurrency, hop in a spaceship, and stick with us as we explore the evolving landscape of the digital world.
