I've seen another glimpse of the future and it was scary.

No, I didn't visit the lady with the crystal ball but what I've learned was just as incredible.

They have learned how to grow your own meat. Yes I said meat. 

It's all done in the lab of course and is just a matter of growing a few stem cells until they are large enough for a meatball, a burger or indeed a joint of meat. 

It's a tempting idea when you think of it. No more fields full of cows and sheep ready to kill. No more slaughter houses. Just lots of laboratories churning out our burgers totally ethically.

The only snag at the moment is that the lab-grown burger which was on show cost £250,000 to make.

Do you want fries with that?
