Here it is, the cornucopia.
American scientists have developed the concept of food printer called «Cornucopia», which operates by cooling ingredients, mixing them and making layers of them. Using these kayers, a dish is printer on a tray. The concept was presented by two students from the Massachusetts University of Technology (MIT).
The process of food printing begins with the selection of needed refrigerated food containers, which are then mixed in a blender. After that, a dish is prepared from different layers. These layers are placed on the tray and are heated or cooled immediately after the mixing in the printhead.
Researchers say that food printing brings cooking to a new level in the digital age we live in. The concept enables creating aromas previously unknown and flavors unavailable in conventional cooking. Developers claim users will be able to control the nutritional value, quality and taste for every meal, using a touch screen and downloading new dishes from the Internet. The printer also allows you to order the ingredient, if needed one has ended, or else offers a replacement ingredient.
The researchers hope that their concept would provide a new look at the new aesthetic and cultural opportunities that can be brought to a new, digital standard.
Interesting stuff, but you won’t get by without buying food anyway.
