Food Printing – Becoming a Reality

3D printing has always seemed a bit like an attempt to make science fiction a reality, but this is perhaps even more so with the case of food printing. The thought of it summons memories of watching Star Trek and seeing the Replicator seamlessly create a wide variety of dishes, all of a high quality too.

Food printing seems to many, to be the first step in achieving this goal of creating any dish you want at the push of a button. While still a long way off from actually being able to reach the end goal, putting it into practice will massively simplify the creation of sweets, cookies and many more foods in an unlimited variety of shapes and sizes at the push of a button. Of course, the technology which can accomplish this is by no means the last model that will ever be made; improvements will happen, and maybe the science fiction will become a reality.
