Edible sugar 3D printer at CES

3D Systems' display at this year's CES included the ChefJet 3D printer, whose output medium is flavored (chocolate, vanilla, mint, sour apple, cherry and watermelon) sugar (it's softened with water and set with alcohol). The monochrome version is less than $5,000, and a full-color version will ship later this year at less than $10K. It's marketed at the food industry, and comes with simple modelling software. The technology's come a long way since the Evil Mad Scientists came up with the CandyFab five years ago. (via Singlarity Hub)
