This week's Question: A startup company, Natural Machines, has introduced a 3D printer called Foodini. The technology creates food with stainless steel capsules and edible, fresh ingredients. The microwave‑oven‑sized Foodini, displayed during Dublin's Web Summit technology conference last week, serves as a miniature food manufacturing plant. The company is currently working with major food manufacturers to create pre‑packaged plastic capsules that can be loaded into the machine. At present, the device only prints the food, which must be then cooked as usual. A future model, however, will also perform the preparation and produce ready‑to‑eat food. What do you think? Would you eat 3D‑printed food?
