Convenience store chain 7/11 is serving up the latest in a line of futuristic near-foods: Instant mashed potatoes from a Slurpee-style spigot. The machine dispenses a stream of instant potato paste, along with a squirt of gravy. The machine, currently available only in Korea, will soon make its way to the United States. In a time of organic, heritage potatoes and biodynamic growing methods, we're glad that 7/11 continues to innovate in the world of easily digestible food-like substances.

Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
