Two of my favorite things! Cooking and 3D printers! NPR’s “The Salt” discusses the confluence of the two. Spinach Dinosaurs To Sugar Diamonds: 3-D Printers Hit The Kitchen.

By the way, years ago I was promised that I’d soon be offered breakfast cereal encrusted with sugar holograms… I suspect the plan was brought low by either a price point or a humidity calculation. So sad, I was looking forward to the view of a cheery breakfast bowl of diffraction gratings, if not the super-sweetness that would be involved.

Just gorgeous!
