3D-Printing seems to be the delight of the Consumer Electronics Show this year. Serious Wonder Editorial Director Gray Scott has been there from opening day, and he recently captured a Vine of the first 3D-printed cakes: edible, and certainly incredible.
In the case of candy, Chef Jet prints water onto the surface of sugar that then re-crystallizes to form whatever the equal parts designer, hacker and chef created using the same CAD technology all 3D printers use.
It’s clear that 3D Printing technology is leaching into just about every area of design there is. Now chefs will be able to use the technology to produce wild culinary creations. While many 3D printers are still expensive, as early models of technology are, the prospective low cost of 3D printers will make them ubiquitous. In the future, we’ll be able to outfit much of our homes and apartments with 3D-printed content.
