Comments Off on Watch NASA-funded 3D food printer whip up an entire pizza

Last year NASA funded one man’s plan to build a food 3D printer for astronauts – and now the first prototype can 3D print an entire pizza! Some of these initial pies may not look like much, but the man behind the project, mechanical engineer Anjan Contractor, intends to perfect his edible design. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ISXqC-YPnpc NASA offered about $125,000 to Systems and Material Research Corporation , the company that employs Contractor, to develop the food printer. A new video shows Contractor’s design in action-the printer has three nasals for pizza dough, ketchup and cheese and the finished “design” takes only 70 minutes to cook, according to Contractor. The result may not look like a culinary work of art, but this simple food could replace the canned and freeze-dried foods astronauts currently eat in space. If this technology is further developed, space could become the next best place to go for delicious food prepared in double quick time. + Systems and Material Research Corporation Via Fast Co Exist

Comments Off on Watch as Isolated Amazon Tribe Makes Contact With the Outside World for the First Time

In a rare event that few people have ever witnessed, a previously isolated tribe encountered the outside world for the first time – and the surprising moment was all caught on video. Several indigenous people emerged from deep inside the Amazon seeking help after their village suffered a deadly attack by probable drug traffickers. The armed tribesmen asked for weapons and allies, saying that their village had been massacred by non-indigenous people. The video encounter shows people offering the tribesmen food and attempting to communicate using enthusiastic gestures as two separate worlds collide.
