As you can see, they're still tooling with the prototype; the bacon has to be fed into the machine, which has been put together using parts from laser fusers and printers, and will hopefully be able to heat it to an optimal temperature of over 450 degrees.
But give these heroes some time, and bacon will be at our fingertips. What a delicious future it will be.
