Many pizza enthusiasts and connoisseurs will cringe at this very thought of machine created, produced and printed pizza, but the machine would most likely be used predominately for communities that are in need and lacking resources, as opposed to replacing your favorite local pizza joint. This kind of technology is the first step to providing hungry families all around the world with inexpensive, labor free meals, as well as providing the western world with a food printer that they can merely speak to and have fresh, hot meals made for them on the spot.
Essentially, to make a pizza, it is a four step process. First, the machine pipes out soft dough and spirals it all together to form the base of the pizza. Following, the machine pipes out a bright red pizza sauce in the same spiral fashion. Third, the cheese, oregano, and any additional desired toppings are added. Fourth, the pizza is baked, and looks surprisingly delicious and appetizing considering it came from a new-age ‘printer’. For now, the third and fourth steps are manually done, meaning the person actually has to sprinkle the top with cheese and toppings, and place the pizza in the oven; the rest of the pizza is made by the printer.
The Foodini is still under development, as the prototype is working on creating a variety of foods, not just pizza, and there is currently no word on when these will be made available for public purchase.
