Researchers make cheesecake using 3D machine
3D printing machines have been used to make a multitude of items, such as, furniture, shoes, a rocket, and even human organs.
Engineers at Columbia University are now whipping up something different using the technology.
The target, dessert.
The team used a 3D printing machine and laser technology to make a seven ingredient cheesecake, according to a study published in the Journal NPJ Science of Food.
The experiment was a step toward making it practical to use 3D printing machine in mechanically assembled food, said one researcher.
A co-author of the study said that food made by the technology shouldn't discourage people, because it's almost using a microwave or oven to cook the food.
Researchers did add that they are looking into how cooking food with lasers might affect it at a molecular level.
