This burger might not be real, but my hunger is.

Update - June 28 12:30am: An earlier version of this story linked a Nico Nico uploader who claimed to have created this work. It seems that is not true. Instead, it was created by the folks at Primitiva, a VFX and animation company in Santiago, Chile.

“Some background on that video is that we simulated meshes based on 3D scans just as an exercise in the office,” Primitiva’s Gabriel Salas tells Kotaku. “We worked on and off during 2 weeks to see if we could achieve photorealistic food that actually made you hungry.”

Mission accomplished. The result might even look better than the greatest video game hamburger I’ve ever seen.
