Want Pizza? Print One! [Video]


Hungry for a pizza?  Print one.  How about a donut with your morning coffee?  Print one.  As crazy as this sounds the technology is here to print food.

“Huh?  I thought printers only printed things like memos, schedules, email and things like that,” you may be saying to yourself.  I know I did.

A 3-D printer recently printed a working gun.  Yep.  Printed all the parts. It was put together and the folks who printed it fired several rounds through it on the range.

Now back to the 3-D printer being able to print food.  It’s here. According to the Huffington Post, a company named Systems & Materials Research Corporation have received a $125,000 grant from NASA to create a universal food synthesizer for 3-D printed food.

NASA believes that such an invention could feed astronauts on long space flights, like Mars, where traditional foods just won’t keep. Keep in mind that the printer is most likely going to produce the food using non-traditional ingredients. It will use powders made from gosh knows what.  The phrase “tastes just like chicken” may change to “tastes just like cardboard.”   In the future, the machine may be able to customize foods, allowing for a certain calorie count and taste preference.

The reaction to the printer has been mixed.  Some want to make sure the 3-D printer is used for food and not guns, while some are grossed out by the idea of printed food.
