Stem cells are used to create animal parts that will be surgically fused together and connected to computer pulse controls and various machinary.
Cow or goat udders and mammary glands are grown from stem cells along with other appropriately sized and classed animal organs in order to sustain the Milk
A planned and manufactured cyramic skeleton is the base for the unholy assemblege that will support (for simplicities sake) a rabbits circulatory and digestive systems.
These systems will be surgically fused into the udders in order to supply nutrients and oxygen flow. Through trial an error the stem cell grown organs will be cyborged into stainless steel machined parts that control the intake and output of the system. Each intake and output as I imagine it would be dual chambered for sanitations sake.
Inputs if I imagine correctly would enjoy the trimmings of pealed veggies/fruit/etc. and the outputs would be great for spreading out over your garden. Ha Ha.
A Milking machine / skimmer / pastuerizer would inhabit the space below the biotech cylinder and would give you your daily milk, cream, or opportunity to try your human hands at a good cheese.
The brain is a part I've not mentioned. It is with some apprehension that I suggest that it might be possible to control some elementary processes such as lung expansion/ contraction (muscles needed affixed to ceramic skeleton) heart beat, liver, kidney, you name it, etc. with a nueron activated silicon board.
Much testing would be required to achive control, Yet as we speak someone will be attempting to replicate a rat's complete brain functions.
The Milk RACYM is the pinnicale of blue collar bioengineered influence. Probably prior to this we would see the Egg RACYM.

||[admin: idea title changed from "RACYM's" - idea titles which give you some clue as to what the idea's about are a good thing]
||I guess it's getting easier to create chimera, and presumably we're also getting closer to interfacing computer parts to animal parts, but frankly, is this *really* a new idea?
||Is there an abbreviation for this sort of forecasting? Something like Industrial Development Inevitable Over Time, maybe.
||//Industrial Development Inevitable Over Time//
||That would be an acronym. A very funny one, at that.
||"Frankenstein" is a good book. Did Mary Shelly take laudanum?
||"I think I'm sophisticated
'Cos I'm living my life like a good homosapien
But all around me everybody's multiplying
Till they're walking round like flies man
So I'm no better than the animals sitting in their cages
in the zoo man
'Cos compared to the flowers and the birds and the trees
I am an ape man
I think I'm so educated and I'm so civilized
'Cos I'm a strict vegetarian
But with the over-population and inflation and starvation
And the crazy politicians
I don't feel safe in this world no more
I don't want to die in a nuclear war
I want to sail away to a distant shore and make like an ape man
I'm an ape man, I'm an ape ape man "
||I wouldn't have been so disappointed with a school of fish jumping in my boat. It's the IDIOT tag that got me. I guess my humour isn't quite congruent with some.
||To quote Pink Floyd ... Ah, why bother. This is only my first time around on this planet. Perhaps I'll get it before I'm old and sell my soul to the Devil in order to become a Republican.
||[baconbrain], accepting your wisdom, I'm having your response printed out, relieved and bronzed as a medal I can wear. It's got to be one of the kindest things anyone's ever cryptically said to me. (I see it was edited to remove the grammatical classification mistake. Bravo!)
