Science! This 3D Printer Makes Elaborate Recipes

Experts say its only a matter of time before 3D printers become as ubiquitous as the smartphone or at least the sewing machine. What are they? These tech marvels are just like regular printers, but handle 3D space. That means any gadget your heart desires can be whipped up in a jiffy. This now also pertains to food.

Introducing the Foodini, a 3D printer for the kitchen. You load the printer with sci-fi sounding "food capsules" and then tell it what recipe to make. Pretty soon you'll be chowing down on said recipe. It seems to excel at repetitive tasks like making pasta and beef patties. Finally, even those of us who suck at cooking can have a sous chef to boss around the kitchen.

The Foodini will actually be on store shelves next year, and not in the year 2058 as the tech would suggest. Upon launch, the unit will cost around $1,300. In the meantime, you can always just buy pre-made dinners and pretend a robot printer made them.
