Much as I love Christmas and all of the festive traditions I have to admit that the thought of cooking Christmas dinner always fills me with dread. There has to be a better way of spending Christmas morning that peeling sprouts and washing out the innards of a turkey whilst the rest of the family sit watching comedy reruns on TV.
Well for those of you who also wish you had a bit more R&R time on Christmas morning then if US scientists have their way all you might need to do in the future is sit by your new 3D food printer and wait for it to create a full roast turkey dish with all of the trimmings.
The scientists tell us that most ingredients might be available as raw food inks and the most cooking skill that will be required is to load the recipie or ‘FabApp’ and let the printer do all of the preperation for you.
I wonder what the chances are of it being ready in time for next year’s celebrations!
An interesting story to bring up in class when talking about output devices or technology developments in the future.
