Affordable Food Printers Will Soon be an Actual Thing

A company called XYZ Printing just announced an affordable food printer at this year's CES conference. It is expected to cost around $500.

The worlds of 3D printers and food have been slowly colliding for the past couple of years. But even though the technology is there to magically print delicious recipes right in the comfort of your own home, the price hasn't exactly been right. One company is trying to change that by releasing a food-based 3D printer at an affordable price-point.

This week's CES electronics conference saw XYZPrinting announce their 3D Food Printer, which prints out dough-based foods in layers ranging from .8 to 6.4mm, with a maximum print size of 7.8 in. by 5.9 in. by 5.9 in. So, if you are thinking cookies, cakes and, potentially, even pasta, you are in the right headspace. Also, it'll allow you to hop online to download shapes, so that chocolate chip Smaug will finally be within your grasp.

What's the price? Well, they haven't announced it officially, but many analysts predict it'll come to store shelves at the very attractive price of $500.
