This sounds like awfully artificial food to me. I'm not sure that it follows the trend toward real, healthy food. Maybe I'm just not ttechnologically savvy enough to 'get" it.
Yeah, that sounds pretty fake to me to.

I want replicator technology. Can you imagine how much fun sharing recipes would be? We could just upload the specs to our latest creations and everyone else could duplicate it at home and taste it, exactly the way we made it.

This is what my company does. Not the food part, but the 3D printing part.

I have been interested in 3-D printing since I first saw something about it on some TV science show (probably on PBS), seems like 20-25 years ago. Is that possible?

I think there are loads of interesting applications. But food?!?

That is around when the industry started so yes it is possible.

We just came out with a very affordable printer for under 20K.
