New 3D printer lets home cooks print their dinner
Fox News ^ | December 11, 2013

Posted on 12/11/2013 11:16:07 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Here’s an appliance to help you make perfect pizza every time, and we mean every time.

The same technology being used to make guns, toys and even diamond rings, is being applied to homemade food.

Barcelona-based 3D printing startup Natural Machines is releasing the Foodini, a 3D printer that allows cooks to create perfectly formed meals, reports the BBC.

Users can combine up to six ingredients to at a time, and with a push of a button, the food comes out of the nozzle in a preprogrammed pattern. Think evenly made pizzas, burgers, and ravioli. And it’s designed so the ordinary home cook can use it.

The Foodini, which looks a bit like a miniature oven, can also perform other useful food prep tasks, like decorate cakes.

However, it can only print in one material at a time, so you'll have to switch different ingredients as you print. And it can only combine ingredients and not actually cook them...

I see we’re all on the same page.

None of them ever ordered a coke. Makes me worry for the future. At least we know Quark has root beer.

Are we going to wind up with intelligent robots that can print their own human inventors?

If they did order coke would they get Coca Cola, White Horse or Coal?

Will a future white hut be able to cut back to, say, only half a dozen chefs? or less?

If pigs have wings, it'll be a mess:

"If seven maids with seven mops
Swept it for half a year.
Do you suppose," the Walrus said,
"That they could get it clear?"
"I doubt it," said the Carpenter,
And shed a bitter tear.

. . .

No, a Jarrett, a toadie, a musselle, and several shczarks will probably stay for the feast.

Get back in your shell, oyster . . . /sarc

Clean up?

One food at a time will mean your bun must be made first so the meat will be hot when you assemble the burger.

Not yet, IMO. Also way too pricey for the 1st generation.

Which character do you think is the most likely to secretly enjoy the nose candy?

I wonder if they had synthecrack.

This is sick.

Y’all enjoy your 3D-printed crap. I’m going to some 3rd-world throwback, where they still make real food.

PING!
