Because apparently Americans don't have easy enough access to junk food, soon getting a candy bar could be as easy as hitting "print." 3D Systems (DDD) announced a deal with Hershey's (HSY, Fortune 500) Thursday to collaborate on developing a 3-D printer that makes chocolate and other edible products.

In a statement, 3D Systems said making printers that print chocolate is a good way to help the relatively new technology go mainstream. Hershey sees it as a great delivery system for its products.

"Whether it's creating a whole new form of candy or developing a new way to produce it, we embrace new technologies such as 3-D printing as a way to keep moving our timeless confectionery treats into the future," said William Papa, head of research and development at Hershey, in a statement...

I’m going to print a chocolate gun. I’ll shoot up my stupid neighbor’s car then eat the evidence.

Yeah, like the chocolate "ink" just comes out of a faucet in the wall. What a moron this "journalist" is. You have to buy the chocolate supplies to print the bar. It's actually more time-consuming to do this than grab one off the shelf and eat it. All this does is allow you to be really creative with your designs.

SSYS and DDD are the major players in this area, and both were knocked down in the past week.

Remember “Deep Thoughts with Jack Handy”?


I think a good gift for the president would be a chocolate revolver. And since he’s so busy, you’d probably have to run up to him and hand it to him.

So does it transmute? Or do you just need to buy a chocolate bar, then the machine melts it and reforms it?

This is basically just a machine that does what we did as kids.. melt a bit of chocolate, fill up an icing bag, then make your own little chocolate mess construct that hardened in a few minutes.
