Yes, a 3D printer for chocolate.
In January, the companies announced they were working on the project. 3D Systems said making printers that print chocolate is a good way to help the relatively new technology go mainstream. Hershey sees it as a great delivery system for its products.
“We are now using 3-D technology to bring Hershey goodness to consumers in unanticipated and exciting ways,” said Will Papa, Chief Research and Development Officer, The Hershey Company. “3-D printing gives consumers nearly endless possibilities for personalizing their chocolate, and our exhibit will be their first chance to see 3-D chocolate candy printing in action.”
Visitors of the exhibit can interact with a library of 3-D graphics pre-loaded on iPads and see what they would look like as a piece of 3-D chocolate.
