3D systems introduced a 3D food printer prototype in Las Vegas last month, Via Cnet
The 3D printer maker… introduced the ChefJet series, a new type of 3D printer entirely. They don’t build plastic 3D objects — instead, they make things you can eat. It’s like a Star Trek replicator, if Star Fleet lived entirely off candy.
The first two printers in this series are the ChefJet and the ChefJet Pro. The main difference between the two is the latter can print color while the former is monochrome. On top of that the ChefJet Pro has a larger build platform — 10 inches by 14 inches by 8 inches (25.4 by 35.6 by 20.3 cm), compared with 8 inches by 8 inches by 6 inches (20.3 by 20.3 by 15.2 cm) of the other.
3D Systems says the ChefJet series’ printable materials come in a variety of recipes, including chocolate, vanilla, mint, sour apple, cherry and watermelon. When used with the ChefJet Pro, all of them can be printed in full color.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
