What Does 3D Printed Pizza Taste Like? [Video]

The future is now…

CES 2015 has been filled with all sorts of wacky inventions, advancements, and glimpses into what may or may not be the future. But of the thousands, upon thousands of things at the show, including racing RC cars using our own brainwaves, nothing blew our minds quite like eating 3D-Printed pizza created by XYZprinting. 

Founded in 2013, XYZprinting is a global company with the goal of bringing affordable 3D printing to businesses as well as individual consumers. They had a ton of different models of printers on display at CES, but the one that got us all riled up was their Food Printer. Set to release later in 2015 at somewhere in the ballpark of $3000, the machine is capable of printing all sorts of food in all sorts of shapes.

The guys at IGN tried out a pizza printed entirely in the new printer.

    It’s very cool but it’s not crazy to think it’s possible. The way these machines work is actually quite simple. Each layer is squirted out on top of each other with the pneumatic arm. The quality of the food relies on the quality of the mixture and the baking process. What they fail to mention is that the food doesn’t come out ready to eat. It’s a very novel idea and I’m sure some people will buy into it but it’s probably more fun rolling out pizza dough with friends than watching it squirt out of a machine.

      True, I think the actual process of it obviously takes the fun out of cooking it yourself, but the technology of it is quite impressive, given that they’ve essentially put a traditionally large-scale production-type production into a small consumer-bought printer. It could definitely be used for the right purposes, such as helping those in need.

        Ya, I suppose but they’ve been making smaller 3D printers for a while now. They are just so expensive. I suppose this will bring the price down if lots of people go out and buy one.
