Hungry? Don't just harvest food ... print 'em! Behold, Cornucopia, a "food printer" concept by Amit Zoran and MIT Media Lab:
While digital media has transformed every facet of society, the fundamental technologies we encounter in the kitchen today provide only incremental improvements to the tools we have been using for hundreds of years. In order to bring our cooking technologies to the digital age, we have developed three concept designs: The Virtuoso Mixer, The Robotic Chef and The Digital Fabricator. Each one addresses a fundamental process that lies at the heart of cooking, namely the mixing of ingredients; the physical and chemical transformation of these ingredients into new compounds; and finally their modeling into aesthetically pleasing and delectable textures and shapes.
