Consumers interested in eating 3D-printed food will soon be able to visit the world's first 3D printing restaurant, Food Ink. The idea started out as a pop-up but is now becoming a full-fledged mainstay in London's hipster capital, Shoreditch. The new concept is the brain child of Antony Dobrzensky, Marcio Barradas in collaboration with byFlow, a company specializing in 3D printers.

At the VIP launch, guests will be fitted with virtual reality headsets and hear AI-composed music to create a futuristic and immersive experience. Nearly everything in the restaurant will be 3D printed, from the furniture to the utensils. Guests will be treated to a nine course meal and will witness their food being printed in 3D right in front of them. The event will also be live-streamed so that anyone in the world can tune in.

The innovative concept, which was tested through its pop-ups, is sure to garner media attention and be a prime hot spot in London. Food Ink would appeal to food connoisseurs, young local hipsters and tourists who stream into the city.
