The 3D Chocolate Printer

This has to be a chocoholics dream come true! It is a printer, but no ordinary printer, this is a 3D printer that prints almost any design in chocolate, imagine the possibilities here for special occasions and just because it is chocolate! You can see these machines in store windows printing out names and other designs in the future, but at the moment, we will have to make do with the video!

According to Dr Liang Hao of the University of Exeter’s College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences;

“What makes this technology special is that users will be able to design and make their own products. In the long term, it could be developed to help consumer’s custom design many products from different materials, but we have started with chocolate as it is readily available, low cost and nonhazardous. Eventually, we may see many mass produced products replaced by unique designs created by the customer,”
