Your old printer has served you well. It’s dutifully churned out term papers, contracts, and last-minute photo gifts. But wouldn’t it be nice to upgrade to a printer that prints chocolate? Seriously though: a team of researchers in the UK have devised a machine that does just that. Apparently the magical chocolate printer works like other 3D printers currently used in manufacturing, creating a 3-dimensional shape by slowly building up very thin layers of material, which in this case just happens to be the most delicious material known to man. At the moment, the chocolate printer is still a prototype, but lead scientist Dr. Liang Hao has big plans: “Chocolate has a lot of social purposes,” she says, “so our intention is to develop a community and share the designs, ideas and experience[s].” Yep, a chocolate-themed social network. The future sounds pretty delicious, huh? [BBC News]
