3D Printed Food
I thought it would be when I was long gone when a man flew in Star Trek type spaceships that printed foods would be a reality, well not so fast, turns out they have now perfected the first step of this in Israel. We may not have food generators like they did on Star Trek, but we do have 3D Food Generators today.
Only in Israel would someone think, “I hate cooking, how about I let my printer do it for me!” What is even better, as with many things in Israel, they actually went out and did this.
The benefits from this could be you could take foods, put them in a storage, compact and preserve, then deliver this to starving area’s where they can just set up printers and poof, you have a meal!
Move over Star Trek, you may have us by a couple hundred years, but we already have the ability to transport matter (only molecules at this point), we have made nanobots, along with tricorders, so today we are working on the food of the future, instead of wasting time prepping, cooking or baking, the dishing out to make things nice, we can press a button on our computer. In a few moments we will have printed food with the texture we want, along with things like cholesterol reduced, foods that we are allergic to omitted, but like substitutes put in, the put into a printable gel that can point out with taste what we want.
The future is here, we are discovering things that many of us can’t understand, but it is here. Hang on folks, this may be a really fun ride! Today 3D printed food, soon it may aid in halting hunger around the world, tomorrow? Who knows, maybe “Beam me up, Scotty!”
