Important: A 3-D Chocolate Printer Exists
A dream machine, if you will
We're suckers for a good collaboration, whether of the fashion or music variety. The partnership currently captivating our attention? The one between Hershey chocolate and 3D Systems, a leader in 3D printing.
Introducing The CocoJet, a chocolate 3-D printer. Yup, this is a real thing. (See the video above for proof.)
The machine is about twice the size of a microwave, and debuted at this winter's Consumer Electronics Show. Using the same technology as traditional 3-D printers, this baby churns out highly detailed designs right before your eyes, in white, dark or milk chocolate.
The printer is currently just a working prototype, but we're kind of OK just drooling over imagining the possibilities for now.
