"who cut the cheese?"

From a soft and creamy wedge of Camembert, to a firm block of cheddar, cheese comes in a variety of states, sizes, and shapes. Researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison are taking cheese shapes to another level by cutting patterns using a pulsed ultraviolet laser.

a€oeOne motivation is the ability to cut cheese into fancy shapes that appeal to kids, such as a dinosaur or letters. The fast food industry is very interested in that idea. Basically, the cutting process is cold laser ablation, like that in laser eye surgery.a€A
Xiaochun Li, UW Researcher

While I congratulate Li and his fellow researchers on their cheese experiments, I personally could care less about the shape of my cheese. It’s all going to end up the same way…melted.
