    I’m sorry, did you just say something about Alinea? Oh, sorry, I mean el Bulli? No? Oh really, because I swear I heard you say something…weird.

    The edible menus are no big deal. Any supermarket sells edible pictures that you can lay on cakes. My store has a printer/scanner that allows people to bring in personal photos make edible decorations for cakes.

    The rest of it seems like overpriced gimmickry to me.

    The legal disclaimer on the cotton candy paper concerns me. “No further use or disclosure is permitted without prior approval”? What if they give you permission to eat it, but don’t give you permission to crap it out?

    I’d be much more inclined to sample some GPL’d food, which presumably would give me more control over derivative works…

  • Actually, I’d have to say that last dish was very much like Dippin’ Dots in shape and form.

  • Can’t infrared lasers blind you?

    • Rampage_Rick

      Well, most lasers over a certain power can blind you, though not necessarily instantly. The problem with infrared lasers is that because the light is invisible, you don’t blink or react to it. Imagine staring at the sun, only you can’t see the sun.
