Hershey Offers Personal 3D Printing Of Chocolate Treats
A collaboration between 3D systems and Hersheys upgrades DIY chocolate
If news from 2014 made the case for 3D printing as this decade's game-changing technology, last week's CES closed the sale. From dresses to drum kits, the show was full of printed, working devices we didn't even see on the radar last January. For some, though, the CocoJet 3D printer took the cake…or the candy, rather.
CocoJet is a partnership venture between 3D Systems and The Hershey Company: a printer that streams delicious liquid chocolate, according to design specs, just as a regular 3D printer streams filament. Users can choose between dark, milk or white chocolate and between pre-programmed designs or confections of their own creative devising.
