Food only an alien would love: Syringed goop

Your food’s in the printer… the machine that lets you create and eat your meal from freshly squeezed syringes

By Daily Mail Reporter

First there were meals we had to make all by ourselves. Then ‘ready made’ meals came along, making life that much easier. But what if you could just print your dinner using food ‘ink’?

Scientists at Cornell University in New York are developing a commercially viable 3D food printer which uses raw ingredients inside syringes.

Part of their Fab@home project, an open-source collaboration, you just put the raw food ‘inks’ into the machine, load the recipe (or ‘FabApp’) – and press the button.

The design takes the form of a set of syringes that deposit food inks line by line, and layer by layer, according to an electronic blueprint.

The blueprint states exactly what materials go where and are drawn up using traditional engineering computer-aided design (CAD) software.

And the implications of the technology could be far-reaching.

  1. What a waste of money that could be used to feed real food to the poor and teach them how to grow their own food!
    Scientific Research is wasting money, period !

  2. How do they believe that this will have a “negative industrial impact”? The raw materials for the ink have to come from somewhere. I strongly believe we are now in the dark ages of science, people will believe any fairytale science spews at them.
