Foodini: the 3D food printer.
3D printed pizza: unimpressive

Have you heard about Foodini? It is a 3D printer for food! Click on the photos to read a longer gizmag article on it. Yes, I got excited until I saw the pizza, which made me realize it was just a really fancy play-dough machine. It also doesn’t really cook it, just heats at 100 degrees to keep things melty. Given the sloppiness of the more pedestrian 3D printers I’ve known from engineering friends’ houses, I’m inclined to think that the $1,300 by mid-2014 is not quite optimized for the price-to-quality, and that it could wait a few years. Plus, you can’t use this 3D printer to make another 3D printer (unless you want one of chocolate)! Still, it’s a pretty neat concept to think about. This tree looks crunchy-delicious.
