Foodini – A 3D Food Printer. A new generation kitchen appliance that combines technology, food, art and design.
Foodini helps create savory or sweet cuisine. The food is real food, made from fresh ingredients prepared before printing. Promoting cooking with fresh ingredients, Foodini manages the difficult and time-consuming parts of food preparation that often discourage people from creating homemade food.
Natural Machines this week took to the stage at the Web Summit in Dublin to demonstrate Foodini, a 3D printer that can be used to create pizza, pasta, burgers and a wide range of other savory and sweet foods.
Users begin by choosing the recipe they want to print, either from the Internet-connected device’s onboard touchscreen or from their own PC or mobile device. Foodini then offers instructions for the various ingredients that should be prepared and placed in its reusable capsules.
Once that’s done, printing can begin, and the assembled result can be available in as little as a few minutes. Then it’s ready for cooking.
With expected pricing of US$1,300, Foodini is scheduled to be available online through a limited production run by the end of this year. A mass-production run is planned for the first half of 2015.
