PUT away your pots and pans, because a Spanish technology company is pioneering printed food.
3D printing has revolutionised the way computer parts are made and could about to change the culinary world.
Natural Machines is marketing its 3D food printer – the Foodini – as an automated meal-assembly machine that creates homemade meals faster and more efficiently than mere mortals ever could.
Technophobes will no doubt turn their nose up at this latest technological development, but Natural Machines founder Lynette Kucsma remains bullish about her idea.
“When people first heard about microwaves they didn’t understand the technology, but now 90% of households have microwaves,” she said.
“We see the same thing happening with 3D food printing, but on a much faster scale because we adopt technology faster and the technology advances faster.”
