I’m not sure what to make of that either.
But shortly I’ll head to the French Culinary Institute to preview a 3D food printer. Sounds a bit strange. I’ve just been informed that Chef Dave Arnold has been preparing Korean food to print during our interview.
Scientists at Cornell University have been experimenting with the technology for some time. According to the scientists, one day we’ll be able to easily print meals by loading the cartridges with food ink. Truth be told, I wasn’t sold by the picture of a turkey celery square in an article about the printer, but it can’t be terrible if the French Culinary Institute is using it… right?
I love tech that gives you that “I live in the FUTURE!!1!” thrill. 3D printers fit they bill — and they’re escaping the big research labs and getting out into the everyday world.
Ali Velshi’s Big I segment today showed off Makerbot’s 3D home printer. Check it out below — the bunny is wicked cute. And for a mere $1,200, you can get one of your very own.
Next week, Laurie is doing a video shoot of a 3D printer that prints food. Actual edible food. We have demanded she try a taste on camera. -Stacy
