You'll be able to eat dinner with your friends across the world with the 'Food Printer.' The design by Zhu Jingxuan is a postcard printer that prints both a picture of a dish and the aroma of it.

The design was made fully functional with the help of Sony's Student Design Workshop. The device works by capturing a picture of the food you've made, while the smell extractor generates the odor. Then, by using a special aroma ink, the picture and smell prints out to make a strongly sensory postcard.

Jingxuan had been working on the project for months, and had many designs and sketches. However, it never would have been realized without the help of Sony, according to China Daily.
