From Chocolate Portraits to Edible Candy Diodes

Cooking may soon become more about tech and less about hands-on ability -- at least that's what all of these edible 3D-printer features seem to suggest. While DIYers and designers are excited about 3D printing, and rightfully so, cooks should also be focusing on the rapidly developing technology. In addition to the high-profile cases of 3D-printed guns and furniture, 3D printers are increasingly being used to create food.

When it comes to 3D-printed food, there isn't much variety as of yet. Still, the few types of food made using 3D printing are extraordinary when you think about the technology behind them and the fact that they could potentially revolutionize how food is created. While the dawn of printed food may soon be upon us, for now, you'll have to be content with checking out all of these edible 3D-printer features.
