Our world is becoming more technologically advanced by the day. We are coming up with many new gadgets to improve our lifestyle. 3D printers are one of these gadgets that will not not only improve our life style but I believe will change the world. 3D printing has come along way. The original function and way the 3D printer works is that it deposits the user chosen material in layers to form an object from a digital 3D copy on the computer. It's an amazing invention. I also lookeda at the things people can print with 3D printers, the possibility are limitless. People have print things from keys to a car. Using very popular and in demand 3D printers like "MakerBot" you can similarly print an thing you want, you just require the scan or template. Usually most of these templates can be found in large communities like "Thingiverse". It's just the huge community that shares their creations that other people with a 3D printer can construct.
But this is just the tip of the iceberg. Now at CES 2014 "3D Systems" unveiled the first 3D printer called "ChefJet" that makes edible food! That is just amazing. Although it make take about an hour or two to print a small sweet. It can simulate the taste of chocolate and it's texture. But that's not even the best part. It can print shapes of food that are interlocked with each other (ex: two hollow cubes joined together). The various combinations that can be done is amazing. I found this very fascinating and can't wait to find out more on what else 3D printing can accomplish.
Above is a short video about 3D Systems product "ChefJet" and tasks that it can perform.
