Watch a machine create stacks of impeccably sliced meat6/17/2012
Electronics, fuel-efficient vehicles, advanced robotics — there's no end to the list of nifty Japanese innovations. And now, meat-lovers can add one more valued contribution to the list: high-performance bacon-slicing. The folks at Nantsune have just released the Libra 165C meat slicer, a sophisticated contraption that uses a displacement sensor to scan meat, determining its 3-D shape prior to each cut, which means the Libra allows the machine to vary thickness accordingly to produce cuts of the exact same weight. The result is extreme, high-speed meat-cutting — the luge of pork production, if you will, that yields up to 6,000 slices per hour. Now imagine if we could get a smaller version of the $160,000 machine in our homes. Bacon for days!
