3-D Food Printer: Star Trek Replicator, Anyone?

Okay, this is just cool. NASA has awarded a company a grant to develop a 3-D food printer. It’ll be loaded with protein, carbs, and sugars in powdered form. It’ll mix them with water and lay down layers of “printed” food. The powdered base ingredients can come from seaweed, grasses, and insects, for example. But they’d be layered to resemble and taste like other foods we all know and love…like pizza. This is SO showing up in one of my future books…
