Move over molecules, make way for digital gastronomy

Cornucopia: Digital Gastronomy

A design concept by Marcelo Coelho and Amit Zoran of the MIT Fluid Interfaces Group, Cornucopia: Digital Gastronomy looks forward and examines how food may be delivered in the future. It’s a food printer.

Ingredients are stored in food canisters and are then fed into a mixer before heading off to an extruder tube. The mash is then layered inside the receiving chamber according to preset instructions. The unit will then be able to heat or cool the food, ultimately resulting in a finished product the likes of which are not seen in nature.

Mmm, don’t forget the crackers.
