3D printing isn’t just for making cool toys. You can do a lot with it and the possibilities are endless. Oreo recently used the technology to print out cookies in a bunch of custom flavors, which were served to the attendees at the SXSW. To do this, Oreo used a “Trending Vending Machine” that uses social media to determine which flavors and color combinations to print!
The machine was created by technology design firm and innovation lab MAYA Design and all users need to do is select their cookie configuration from a touchscreen panel. Enter a flavor and color combination choice, then wait for the Trending Vending Machine to print out the customized cookie, pick it up and eat it. It is a a great concept and a cookie created by the masses. Who know what food we will be able to print next.
If we had this technology in our homes, all we would ever eat is cookies. Who knows, maybe one day, they may even be made fresh at our supermarkets to our custom specifications. This technology has potential for all sorts of things.
