https://youtu.be/UWOVvSfSjCM ? Although most 3D printers use inedible filaments , like plastic, the byFlow printer creates dishes out of any edible ingredients that can be made into a paste, such as hummus , chocolate mousse, goat cheese, and pizza dough. The paste is inserted into a syringe-like container, where its heated and then pushed out to create a thin layer of food “ink.” Successive layers are printed until a stable three-dimensional structure is achieved. ? “The goal of FOOD INK is to use the universal language of food as an engaging and accessible way to promote awareness about the amazing possibilities of 3D-printing and other promising new technologies,” says the FOOD INK team. The FOOD INK culinary direction will be led by Spanish chef Mateo Blanch of Michelin-starred restaurant La Boscana in Spain, who will 3D print the food live with an international team of chefs and artists. The 3D-printed food will be paired with whole, non-printed foods. While the sculptural dishes may seem gimmicky, 3D-printed food has potential health and sustainability benefits, from nutrient customization to reduction of food waste.

FOOD INK began with a successful opening at the 3D Printing Food Conference in Venlo, the Netherlands. The restaurant will kick off its world tour with a nine-course 3D-printed dinner in London from July 25 to July 27. FOOD INK will travel around the world to cities like Dubai, Seoul, Paris, Las Vegas, Toronto, New York City, Taipei, and more in late 2016. + FOOD INK Via ArchDaily Images via FOOD INK

The project is part of A $2 billion scheme developed by Frasers Property and Sekisui House, which will include shops, a hotel, student housing and a public park . The metallic appearance of the plant contrasts with the existing brewery’s red brick facade. Related: Old slaughterhouse in Madrid is turned into an incubator for creative startups “The built form of the project needed to provide a memorable expression of this important new technology within the urban context while also meeting the demanding technical requirements of the cooling towers and enhancing the heritage significance of the buildings,” the designers said. The design firm added, “This project delivers significant community benefits through both the provision of a highly energy efficient method of supplying power as well as hot and cold water to a significant new mixed-use development on the fringes of the city as well as providing a model of how this new technology can be integrated with an important historic structure.” + Tzannes Via Dezeen Photos by John Gollings

Comments Off on Earth’s atmosphere is leaking 90 tons of material every day

Earth has sprung a leak. Every day, 90 metric tons of matter leaks from Earth’s upper atmosphere into space. This sounds scary, but in total the atmosphere weighs about five quadrillion metric tons, so we have a lot of atmosphere to work with. Still, scientists are paying attention to the leak, because it could help us understand what makes a planet habitable.

Comments Off on There’s an 80% Chance that El Nino Will Hit Between October and November

The past few years have seen weather extremes around the globe – and it looks like we won’t be catching a break this year, either. Scientists predict there’s an 80 percent chance that El Nino will hit sometime between October and November, and a 60 percent chance that it could hit even sooner – anytime between now and the end of August. El Nino causes all kinds of weather extremes – from drought to flooding – in every part of the globe, which can dramatically disrupt agriculture and the world’s food supply.
