3D Printer That Prints Food Prepares For Release

Last year you may remember a piece running on this blog about Foodini, a 3D printer that prints plates of food instead of plastic knickknacks. The release date was up in the air back when that piece was written, but now it looks like the printer's creator, Natural Machines, is prepping to unleash their magical piece of tech upon the world.

If this is your first time reading about the Foodini, the printer uses plastic caplets of food ingredients to create dishes like pizza, cookies, pasta and a whole lot more. However, the creators have noted that this first iteration of the device will still need you to cook the food in your own oven after it is assembled. Future iterations will also do the cooking. Finally, humanity can lounge around and do nothing, just like in that inspirational documentary Wall-E.

Natural Machines hasn't announced an actual release date, per say, but reports indicate that it will be within the next few months, which gives you just enough time to save some coin. The Foodini is expected to cost $1,000.
