New 3D Printer Can Produce PizzaPosted: September 17, 2015 | |
Hungry for some pizza? Just print it out with a click of the mouse.
Taiwan’s XYZ 3D printer layers the ingredients before the food can be baked in the oven and gives space-age chefs the ability to choose their own shapes and upload files of their snacks.
The printer can currently accommodate up to three tubes of printing ingredients — for example, a cookie dough-like mixture, chocolate for decorating biscuits, or dough, tomato sauce and cheese to form a pizza, a spokesman for the Taiwanese firm told MailOnline.
Chefs can also decorate their own baked goods before pressing “Print” on the touchscreen.
Currently, the gizmo can print out pizza, cookies and cake — but the company is working on developing other dishes, while also obtaining licenses for ingredients from food companies.
The printer sells for a bit more than a slice — $2,035. It’ll be available soon in Asia.
