    Gordon lacks a firm grasp on reality.

    this grasshopper and ungers flys are utterly pointless and extremely annoying!
    these are NOT products – they are refered to as products in these articles – BUT – none of them are products, none of them as for sale, none of them are going into production.
    it\\\\\\\’s a big(bug) con by universities and design students making a namme for them selves by exploiting people who are looking for PRODUCTS!

    I just graduated with a project about breeding insects too. Just that I really bred and processed and ate them.

    Please check out my Behance and website, as well as my vimeo account for the research videos:

    Exellent article. In Mexico, We eat this kind of protein alot, we even have the most popular recepies enjoying this protein. And KITCHENAID, could´nt come up with a great solution to grow our own.

    Where does one buy this? I’m looking all over the internet…lol.
    Dead serious too. I love the design and the idea is logically sound.

    I can’t wait when Gordon is starving and his natural instincts for survival force him to eat insects. He will cry in his own shame. Meanwhile, in reality this is an amazing idea. It’s going to happen eventually.

    Where do I buy this????

    I\\\’ve had a cricket burger, but I\\\’ve not yet had the nerve to just pop a grasshopper in my mouth. I\\\’m working on it, though. Really shouldn\\\’t seem any more disgusting than eating shrimp.

    Why not! I would try it. They say it\\\’s delicious.

    This is a terrible idea. I’d let the earth shrivel and die before I’d eat a grasshopper.
