Print what you imagine with Imagine 3D printer
You’ve been hearing since quite some time that it’s coming and finally it’s here. The world’s first printer that can print food is now a reality, courtesy New York-based tech startup Essential Dynamics Inc. And this printer is ready for sale as well. All you need to do is to go to the Essential Dynamics website and place your order. So you can finally have a 3D printer that can take center stage at your kitchen anytime you want to and start printing food rather than cooking it. The company has aptly named it as the Imagine 3D Printer, since what it does is something that could only be imagined by us in the past.
What makes Imagine unique?
The fact that Imagine can print rather than cook food makes it a unique product on its own. However, its makers didn’t stop over there when it comes to its uniqueness, so to speak. The printer uses syringe-based technology. The syringes this printer uses can be filled with not just edible inks, but also silicone, epoxy, organics, and even concrete if required. So, calling it just a food printer is not apt after all. It prints much more than just food, probably all that we imagine it can.
When was Imagine unveiled?
Imagine was first unveiled at the International Consumer Electronics Show 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada in January this year. As we all know, the International Consumer Electronics Show is the world’s largest consumer technology trade show, and being a part of it is no mean achievement. Expectedly, Imagine received an unbelievable response from the show’s audience and now it’s all set to be a part of our daily lives.
What’s the cost?
However, having it as a priced possession may be a costly proposition for an average household. The price Essential Dynamics has quoted for Imagine is close to $3,000 ($2,995 to be precise). Yet, it’s safe to presume that with increase in demand, the prices of this marvel of a printer will eventually come down. As part of its activities to market Imagine, the company has also created a 3D community – Mongasso – where it shares its 3D designs.
