Need Fiber? Let Me Print You a Cookie

By on Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

In the not-too-distant future you will be able to program in the food you want and watch it printed out right in front of you—Jetson style. Technically, this can already be done. Jeffrey Lipton, a doctoral candidate at Cornell University’s Creative Machines Lab and chief technology officer of Seraph Robotics, have already demonstrated how this works. Using data and a 3-D printer, individual food items can be printed taking into account dietary patterns and needs. For example, if you need fewer calories and more fiber, a cookie could be printed just for you. Lipton has created everything scallops in the shape of buildings to chocolates molded after lovers’ faces. Be sure to check out this article from The Huffington Post with lots of pictures, links and videos.
