A team of students at MIT have developed a 3D printer for ice cream.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Gsecqz4qWw]
According to one of the stuents:
We were inspired to design this printer because we wanted to make something fun with this up and coming technology in a way that we could grab the attention of kids. We felt that it was just as important to come up with a new technology as it was to interest the younger generation in pursuing science and technology so we can continue pushing the limits of what is possible.
“We imagine this technology being marketable in ice cream parlors such as Dairy Queen where customers can order an ice cream treat, wait 15 minutes, and see the shape they chose be created.”
