I have no talent for fancy food designs, but this Bocusini 3D food printer totally does—and it’s not just for restaurants. The Kickstarter aims to make this technology accessible to the masses with a price point that is a little more affordable than current alternatives.
With food cartridges filled with flavored marzipan, chocolate, or fudge (more options are on the way), the printer uses a heated extrusion head to heat up the ingredients and print creative designs. Used in collaboration with the Bocusini web platform, you can essentially create whatever you can imagine. It also works right out of the box.
They’re on track to surpass their goal early, and those who pledge for the system are expected to receive it in January 2016. If you already own a 3D printer, there’s no need to buy another. Team Bocusini is also offering “hacker” kits that allow you to retrofit several other 3D printers into food makers.
Check out some of the creative uses and a video after the break.
