Whoever said that 3D food was not a possibility in the near future can now swallow his words. The idea of 3-dimensional food has not only wowed the industry with its plethora of options, but it has now devised a way of providing affordable 3D printed food.
The XYZPrinting 3D Food Printer is all set to achieve this target at a mass scale after its exposition at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2015 to be held in Las Vegas. The latest model has gone way beyond conventional boundaries of creative food making with its ability to print any kind and style of uncooked cookies or dough-based pastries within just a few minutes.
Food critics and reviewers have already given a thumbs-up to the printed food, raving about their taste.
Consumers will be able to buy these 3D food printers in the second half of this year. The XYZPrinting 3D Food Printer will be one of the first food printers to be produced on a mass scale. While the exact cost of the printers is not yet decided, sources within the industry state that the price could range anywhere between US$500 and US$1,900.
At the moment, the XYZPrinting 3D Food Printer can only make cake decorations and pastries and the ingredients used by the printer include dough and chocolate.
The XYZPrinting 3D Food Printer can interact with Mac OSX and Windows 7 and 8 systems with ease with the help of a USB device. The 3D cookies as well as decoration designs are stored online and can be downloaded onto the printer.
