3D Food Printing ... the Killer 'consumer' App?

The French Culinary Institute in Manhattan is experimenting with a 3D Food Printer. You load up anything soft, like melted chocolate or icing, and it will print it in artistically perfect patterns. Jeff Lipton, a mechanical engineering post-grad, is leading the project.

The idea came out of Cornell's Fab@Home venture, where they started experimenting with food fabrication back in 2007. Chef David Arnold, has been testing out the technology since 2009. "One of the main things I hope this machine will let us do is create new textures that we couldn't get otherwise," he says.

Cup cakes anyone?

Entrepreneur Jamil Yosefzai plans to be on the forefront of commercializing 3D Food Printing. His New York City-based startup, Essential Dynamics, is working on a version that can be sold to the first wave potential customers: pastry chefs and tech early adopters.
