The new Foodini puts a twist on the traditional 3D printer, Foodini cooks with stainless steel capsules and edible ingredients.
The last you want to do after a long tiring day at work is cook dinner for own yourself and dining out or ordering food everyday also doesn’t sound like a very healthy option to you either. Well, in this case, Natural Machines is going to help you get your dinner without any unwanted efforts. The startup has introduced a 3D printer for food which they have dubbed as Foodini and it is going to create food with stainless steel capsules and edible ingredients. The regular 3D printers, co-founder Lynette Kucsma told CNN that “It’s the same technology. But with plastics there’s just one melting point, whereas with food it’s different temperatures, consistencies, and textures.”
The 3D printer was introduced at the Web Summit technology conference in Dublin where it was revealed that it would serve as a sort of mini food manufacturing plant and would be the size of a microwave which would be able to 3D print a range of dishes, from sweet to savory. Of course we aren’t so enthusiastic about having a steamy plate of melted capsules for dinner but Natural Machines says that its printers will utilize fresh ingredients.
“The food is real food, made from fresh ingredients prepared before printing,” the company says. “Promoting cooking with fresh ingredients, Foodini manages the difficult and time-consuming parts of food preparation that often discourage people from creating homemade food.”
Initially the Foodini would only be marketed to the professionals but soon there is going to be a consumer version of it which would cost around $1,000.
