An ongoing collaboration between Cornell’s Fab@Home research group and The French Culinary Institute in New York City is exploring the future of food and technology with a 3D Printer capable of producing edible designs. The fabrication system can use virtually any pliable ingredient such as pastes or gels to “print” food items into previously unimaginable shapes and textures. And if the idea of “on-demand” eats doesn’t sound especially palatable, then perhaps the video below will help whet your appetite, showcasing the machine’s early applications as a baking aid – decorating cakes and creating new types of pastries.

As more materials become available for printing and the technology continues to come down in price, we expect to see these 3D printers seeing wider adoption across industries, moving from purely commercial to more consumer use cases.
