Copying Just Got More Chocolate-y


Imagine creating custom confections in any shape you desire, watching layer after gooey layer turn into chocolate tastiness.

It’s now possible, thanks to a 3D chocolate printer developed by researchers at the University of Exeter and made available by Choc Edge via eBay. Apparently there’s competition in the automated goodie-making field. MIT has a prototype called Digital Chocolatier in the works, this one able to make filled chocolates as well.

Smart minds making life sweeter. Thank you academia.
