The team at 3D Printing Industry previously reported on Food Ink’s upcoming stop in London as part of a pop-up dinner series, which showcases 100% 3D printed foods, utensils and furniture. Thankfully, one of our very own was present for the event, and came back feeling full and futuristic.
As promised, the night offered up a bunch of gorgeously plated dishes all from 3D printers. Meals were served on microchip-inspired place mats, further solidifying the futuristic atmosphere of the night. Additionally, the multi-sensory menu was completely printed in-house during the event.
More DIY dishes
Besides customizing vitamin levels, however, Food Ink’s plates are completely pre-determined. As 3D printing becomes more commercialized, it is important that technology remains inherently user-friendly and customizable, since this is what sets 3D printing a part from other manufacturing technologies. In the field of 3D printed food companies are already responding to consumers’ desires to take control of the manufacturing process. The Foodini, for example, is working to transform 3D food printers into common kitchen appliances, with which users can customize everyday dishes. Food Ink’s dinner series is making waves in the industry but could possibly sink ships if they introduced a few DIY dishes.
Feast your eyes
Below you can check out some photos of the appetizing plates featured at Food Ink’s previous installment in Venlo, The Netherlands.
Stay tuned with the 3D Printing Industry to see where Food Ink will end up next on their world tour.
