Comments Off on Dovetailed’s 3D Fruit Printer Creates Strange New Flavors and Experiences

Well here’s another first for 3D printing: Dovetailed recently launched the 3D Fruit Printer, an extraordinary new machine that combines individual droplets of liquid to create convincing fruit imitations. Aimed at foodies and chefs, the British-designed printer uses a  molecular-gastronomy technique called spherification to create fruit-flavoured balls that resemble tapioca pearls. Even though the fruit is anything but real, the flavor possibilities are endless, and it’s possible to combine the pearls so they actually take on the shape of apples, pears, and other fruits that are yet to be invented.

But the latest development in thermoelectric energy generation doesn’t come from a high-tech lab at MIT; it comes from Ann Makosinski, a 15-year-old Canadian girl who developed a flashlight that is powered by the heat from a human hand . With the aim of reducing the number of single-use batteries that are thrown in landfills, Makosinski developed the innovative flashlight, which can be developed cheaply and could be deployed to populations that can’t afford electricity to light their homes.

The “Ready-to-wear-away” dress wears away as you wear it. Photo: Deborah Feingold On TreeHugger, we like to focus on fashion that is built to last but this unusual garment could hardly go down without a mention.
