Called “Eat Your Face”, this innovative 3D printer by David Carr and researchers at the MIT Media Lab “accepts a scan of your face and then recreates it using a block of chocolate; the end result being your face, in chocolate, ready to eat.” Continue reading for a video and more information.
Carr believes it is something that could rival giving someone a chocolate bunny at Easter if it wasn’t for people’s reactions to biting down on an actual face. Even so, it’s not the face recreation that’s the cool part of this tech – it’s the fact we can print things in chocolate. It shouldn’t be hard to develop the printer and software further and have it creating all sorts of 3D objects in delicious edible form. If Carr, or anyone else willing to work with the existing printer, can perfect that, they’ll have a product chocolate stores everywhere will be eager to get their hands on.
