3D Printers Create Fancy Future Crackers That Sprout Into A Mini Salad


Food Designer Chloé Rutzerveld believes 3D printing will revolutionize the food industry, and she is getting the ball rolling by developing a 3D printed cracker that consists of living organisms such as seeds, spores, and yeast. In three to four days, the seeds and spores sprout into a miniature salad that is said to be completely natural and healthy, demonstrating the potential the technology has to “make the [food] production chain very short,” with less transportation and land requirements.

It is expected that it could taken a decade to get such products to market, but you can get a sneak peek at the process by checking out the video after the jump.
