True! Scientists and generally smart guys over at the University of Exeter have built a viable 3D Printer that creates chocolate marvels using a special software (thanks to the blokes at Brunel University–this is a collaboration.) If you think this singular achievement will only make faculty members from both institutions fat, well, that partially true. But keeping it serious now, the chocolate 3D printer could be in the local candy shop sooner than you think. The whole point of the lovely machine is to take chocolate to places it has never been.
The chocolate 3D printer works along the lines of a Makerbot and most commercial 3D printers in general. It’s ultimate purpose however, is to provide a new level of novelty to consumers. Imagine submitting your chocolate design to a company that operates a few of these and then the finished chocolate is delivered to your doorstep. Such is the expected genius of the chocolate 3D printer.
Also, if it’s ever put to personal use wherein people can buy their own printers and operate them, why, every bloke in the neighborhood will be Willy Wonka!
While chocolate is like the fount of eternal youth, please don’t forget to brush your teeth regularly. Cavities suck!
