This is very interesting, but if this is going to be a global solution, it needs to go further. It looks like they're focusing just on the protein to make the lean muscle meat that Westerners like. But in China people like fatty meat, as well as animal parts that Americans eat less of, like pork feet, chicken feet, organ meats, congealed blood, etc.

At the very least, they'll have to work on a way to make convincing animal fat and put it into the meat.

My review of The Art of Language Invention, by +David Peterson 
                I received an advance copy of David J Peterson’s The Art of Language Invention, which after some procrastination I have recently finished. It’s a book I highly recommend both to newbie and advanced conlangers, as well as anyone who might be interested in conlanging. Before I get started with my review, I will point out that William Annis has a great overview of the book on his Tumblr, and Gretchen McColloch of All Thin...

Another place that is like hotel rooms in this way is the international airport. I've always thought that international airports were almost their own nation apart from the rest of the world. I have been in the airports Pittsburgh, Detroit, Chicago (O'Hare), Dublin, Manchester, Shanghai (Pudong), Beijing, Nagoya, and Tokyo, and all of them have the same procedures and structures, the same over-priced stores and restaurants (which may seem even more unreasonable when flying from a place where food is cheaper), and all the same trappings: moving walkways, security and customs lines, the same chairs at the gate, etc. They're also often home to all sorts of art projects and a certain kind of sterile architecture that gives that character of sameness

The de facto official language of Airportland is English, which shares its status both with the official language of the country the airport is in, but more importantly also whatever languages are needed for it's most important connections. In Detroit you can hear announcements in English, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, and Japanese, largely because there are a lot of connections going through there to Japan and China.

All of this feeds into the airport feeling like a transitional space not unlike hotel rooms. But rather than being a rest stop along the way, the international airport is where you wait until you can be at your destination. Since traveling on an international flight itself doesn't really feel like anything but waiting (you don't feel much movement, barring turbulence, and there's not much to see outside), so the whole experience itself, to me, is less like a series of waiting rooms in the timeless, sterile country of Airportland until you can just walk out to the street and suddenly discover you are somewhere else.
