With a name like “The Magic Candy Factory” you expect great things. I would say that 3D printed custom gummy candies definitely deliver. German company Katjes teamed up with organic confection entrepreneur Melissa Snover to unveil this fancy 3D printing gummy machine.
The machine allows the user to design their candy using an intuitive iPad-based user interface. The gummy candy is heated while printed, and as each layer cools it hardens to retain the 3D shape. It take about five minutes to print out a 10 gram treat and it’s totally memorizing to watch.
While the ingredients are confidential, Snover confirms the candies are lactose, gluten and gelatin-free, and entirely vegan. Delicious designs can be printed from seven different colors and 10 different flavors including mango, apple, blackberry, and extra sour flavors.
Check out more printed treats and the video demo after the break.
