Cambridge UK based design studio and innovation lab Dovetailed has developed a 3D printer that can make edible fruit. By combining individual liquid droplets with different flavours into a desired shape, it allows the creation of interesting bespoke fruits in a matter of seconds. It is aimed at chefs, foodies and anyone interested in making creative dining experiences.
No specialist knowledge of cuisine is required to rapidly create fresh and organic 3D fruits on demand. Dr. Vaiva Kalnikaitė, Founder and CEO of Dovetailed, says: “We have been thinking of making this for a while. It’s such an exciting time for us as an innovation lab. Our 3D fruit printer will open up new possibilities not only to professional chefs and food companies but also to kitchens in our home – allowing us to enhance and expand our dining experiences.
We have re-invented the concept of fresh fruit on demand.” Dovetailed say that with their novel printing technique, you can not only re-create existing fruits, but also invent your own creations. The taste, texture, size and shape of the fruit can all be customised.Read more
