Chocolate Printer Makes Custom 3-D Treats
Chocolatiers and chocoholics take note: New tech eliminates the need for a steady hand on that pastry bag full of ganache. Custom boxes, logos and portraits made from chocolate — and all in 3-D — will be as easy as pressing a button.
Last year, University of Exetor senior lecturer and materials scientist Liang Hao started his own company called Choc Edge. His goal was to perfect the prototype for a 3-D machine that prints personalized chocolate shapes. In a scrumptious advancement, Hao told the BBC News he expects Choc Edge to start selling the printer shortly.
