Choc printer

3D printing has taken a sweet new turn with the development of the ‘Choc Creator 1’ – a printer that creates custom 3D treats. Designed by Choc Edge (headed by Dr Liang Hao from the University of Exeter), the printer will begin retailing on ebay for £2,500.

Dr Hao also has plans to extend his chocolate experiments into cyberspace with a chocolate-oriented website. He explains, “Chocolate has a lot of social purpose, so our intention is to develop a community and share the designs, ideas and experiences about it.”
