To many, this may be the most important invention of the century. 3-D printing company 3D Systems and Hershey are collaborating to develop a chocolate printer. Enough said.
In case you don’t know, a 3-D printer can print just about anything from little plastic toys, parts for a fully functional gun, or even a robot. Add chocolate to the mix and the possibilities are endless; and it doesn’t have to be limited to just chocolate either. For 3D Systems, it’s a great way to get a new technology to go mainstream. Hershey’s sees the collaboration as a way to get their products into people’s homes and businesses. We see it as the power to become God- over chocolate.
For now, there’s no date set on when we can expect to see this revolutionary device on the markets. While normal 3-D printers go for around $1000, there is no word yet how much a chocolate printer will cost either. Let’s be real though, would we really care? Just take my money and leave me in peace with my chocolate.
