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?

    So If I look up an image of the mona lisa, providing I have the right amount of chocolate, it'll work? Or, since it's so pricey, will I have to buy like rare Swiss chocolates or something so I don't f--- up the machine with Hershey's? =/

    providing chocolate work pricey buy rare swiss chocolates machine hersheysAlso, will an IKEA version be made available. I'll set up the damn thing by myself if it knocks off about 80% of the cost.

    Not for 3,500 dollars, that work doesn't look nearly good enough to justify that kind of investment. When it gets cheaper and better I would consider it of course, but having experience making chocolates by hand I honestly doubt you can beat a simple mold.

    I don't have enough of a disposable income to justify it. I wouldn't mind a free one, though.
