McDonald ‘s just announced it will be the first fast food restaurant in the United States to add lab-grown meat to its menu. Following the success of Sergey Brin’s lab-grown burger experiment in London last year, McDonald’s says they will ‘grow’ their own chicken McNuggets in special laboratories across New Jersey. The move is expected to reduce the number of real chickens needed to supply the company’s 35,000 outlets across the globe.

Comments Off on Google Purchases Dubai’s World of Islands to Reconfigure into Google Shaped Floating Cities

At the beginning of 2011, Dubai ‘s most notorious man-made islands, a.k.a. The World, made a splash with news that they were slowly but surely sinking into the sea . Now, in a bizarre twist of events that even had us surprised (and trust us, we thought we’d seen it all when it comes to The World), Google has announced that it purchased the troubled archipelago and will be reconfiguring it to form the shape of the Google logo. While we’ve seen the search engine giant dabble in everything from green energy to self-driving cars , this is the first we’ve heard of them making their way into island real estate. Once complete, the Google-shaped landmasses will be self-sustaining floating cities, and the company reports that it plans to retain a portion of the development for its own private use and sell the rest off to the highest bidders.

Comments Off on McDonald’s Japan Shuns Chinese Chicken Amidst Tainted Meat Scandal

China’s meat industry was recently dealt another blow as McDonald ’s Japan announced plans to stop importing Chinese chicken for sale in its restaurants.

Comments Off on VIDEO: A Tour of Mark Baez’s Translucent M Cube Residence

A few years ago, Inhabitat had a chance to catch up with M Design’s eco-prefab architect Mark Baez in lovely Venice, CA.  He gave us a personal tour of his M Cube home —a minimalist, modular, sustainable, and surprisingly affordable prefab residential development that he designed using his patented prefab modular building system. Designed based on traditional Japanese tatami and imperial units of measurement, M Cube may appear spartan at first glance, but proves deceptively comfortable once inside. The home is actually now up for sale , so if you’ve always dreamt of living in an elegant, minimalist cube, you may be in luck.
