Do You Want a Chocolate Printer?

We've talked about printable food before. But this may be even better. Behold: the world's very first 3D chocolate printer. Too bad it wasn't around for Easter, huh? Choc Edge, the maker of the product, was founded by Dr. Liang Hao from the University of Exeter. And it's been in the market for a few weeks now, albeit with a pretty steep selling price of $3,500.

But just because the printer is pricey, doesn't mean it's complicated. Hao says the beauty of the product is that it's built for the masses, not for some mad scientist locked up in a lab. "We've improved and simplified the machine, so now it is really easy to use," Hao told the BBC. "You just need to melt some chocolate, fill a syringe that is stored in the printer, and get creative printing your chocolate." Sounds easy enough. And also, delicious. Are you interested in purchasing a chocolate printer?

    Good luck finding a place to buy it. :/ I've searched online but I just can't find any online stores that sell cool Japanese candy (and there's a LOT of cool Japanese candy - I spent an hour looking at youtube videos of some of it last night)
