The Eggbot Omelet by Dan Newman Acts as Poultry Produce Packaging

Some foods come with their own organic wrappers, and the Eggbot Omelet by Dan Newman applies eggshells as blank canvases.

Eggs do come in cartons, but they communicate significantly less information than the packages of pre-made meals with recipes and long lists of ingredients. With this fact in mind, there's a sense of humor about the way these edible items have been branded with the help of the Eggbot.

The artistic robot that's able to act as a printer on spherical surfaces was used here to provide cookbook instructions for preparing an omelette. Another project gives the yolk-filled fare a nutritional information label which indicates fat, caloric and cholesterol content. This factual food creation and the Eggbot Omelet by Dan Newman are witty pieces that comment on contemporary packaging.
