Cutting cheese is always a laughing matter. Ask any 5 year old…
MADISON, Wis. (AP) – A researcher from the University of Wisconsin at Madison has figured out a better way to slice cheese – just use a laser.
“At any other university, people would have just laughed. But this is Wisconsin. It’s cheese. And this is no laughing matter,” said Xiaochun Li, a mechanical engineering professor and laser expert. [..]
At first, Li tried using a traditional commercial laser that uses heat to cut by melting or evaporating; it fried the cheese.
“It smelled really bad,” he said.He who smelt it, dealt it.
