with industrial technologies booming in diverse creative directions, barcelona-based start-up natural machines has developed a kitchen appliance that brings 3D printing into the home. the foodini is intended as a domestic device, and looks aesthetically clean in the house, while managing the time consuming parts of handmade food preparation that often discourage people from cooking at home, like rolling pasta dough, filling individual ravioli, and crafting cookie silhouettes. streamlining the process, the 3d food printer creates shape, height, and volume independent of the user and can generate both large products like chocolate figures, and flatter foods like crackers. so far, the natural machines team have printed a bean patty, roll, and cheese sauce onto a burger, crafted pumpkin gnocchi, and fashioned a pizza from printer to plate.


BBCnews took an exclusive look at the foodini printer. take a look at the device in action, below:

  • 3D printer ? Seriously ? Just an expensive pastry bag. Where is the pleasure of cooking ?

    Michel says:
  • I´d rather eat paper

    juliano says:
  • Man, now that´s lazy.

    What? says:
  • The technology may be sound, but this is a bad development in the quest to feed people healthy and great food and for people to take enjoyment out of preparing it. Seriously making a Pizza Dough is really easy and fun, How horrible does that base look.
