Reports are pointing out to a variety of 3D printed foods heading for us this year and for many years to come. It is said that companies are testing with 3D printed food, mixing recipes an shapes together and bringing an awesome design as well as a great taste on our plates!
The procedure could evolve in one of the biggest 3D market segments if proved successful this year. We have seen many 3D printing companies showing off their recent 3D printers filled with a multitude of functions back at CES 2014, and there were some food-based products as well. We know that there are different types of 3D-printed foods currently in various phases of development, and it will be an industry to watch in the future.
It is also said that chocolate maker Hershey’s also teamed up with a 3D company to produce 3D printed chocolate, which will be a major draw for the company’s gift shop. Cornell Creative Machines Lab has developed printers that can dough-based corn chips, while sugar candies also are available courtesy of 3D Systems’ Chefjet. Also, NASA contractor Systems & Materials Research is working on a pizza printer that provides taste, nutrition, and less waste in the space shuttle and at the International Space Station (ISS).
So we have something to choose from already, but how wacky-beautiful and delicious can it get? We’ll just have to wait and see what stores are going to be filled with in the future.
