writes "The folks over at Boing Boing have released part 3
of their video series on TCHO Chocolate, a small start-up that is applying post-modern techniques to the making of chocolate. Here are
part 1 and
part 2, which you should presumably watch first. In
part 2 "Space Shuttle tape" is used in the DIYing of one of their many chocolate processing devices.
From the article: 'Today we dive in to the genetics of chocolate plants, and the hedonics — the tasting experience — of the finished product, where science meets sensuality meets sugar. Oh hell, who are we kidding, you guys? We sat around and GOT HIGH on neuroactive cocoa alkaloids. We freebased theobromine and we LIKED IT. We liked it a LOT.Warning: this episode is NSFC (not safe for chocoholics).'"
