Presenting the Choc Creator 3D, a machine that prints chocolates

You may have seen 3D printers before, machines that can create complex 3D objects by melting plastic. What we have today is no different than that, except instead of plastic objects this machine prints out chocolates.

Yes, you read that right. This machine uses molten chocolate which it slowly places into layers into any 3D shape you want. You can see it in action in the video below.

Choc Edge, the creators of this machine, intended for it to launch in time for Easter but they couldn’t quite manage that. I think that if they wanted people to use it for Easter, they should have launched it some time last year because at the speed that this machine works, if you start at Easter you will have your chocolates ready by Christmas.

And that’s not even the worse part. The machine costs a whopping £2,888 ($4,584), although it is currently being offered at a discounted price of £2,488 ($3,949) if you pre-order it.

So although it is extremely cool, I’d rather go out and buy my chocolates instead of feeling myself grow older (and poorer) watching this machine print out chocolates.
