DailyDirt: Will Refill Cartridges For Food Printers Be Insanely Expensive?

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The technology for 3D printing is getting better and cheaper all the time, but some folks think the "killer app" for these printing machines is in food preparation.

Still, it'll be pretty cool when most households own an oven, stove, microwave oven... and a 3D food printer. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.
