Thinking it’s still a part of “Black Mirror” show to eat a dinner printed by a 3d machine? It’s already a reality!

See what is on the 3D menu as for today.

8-bit sushi

At SXSW, Open Meals showed off a “Pixel Food Printer” that 3D prints edible pixelated sushi. It predictable, such things will be a huge Instagram trend.

The creators want their digital food platform “Food Base” to be a place for people to search, download, and upload food data.

The second component to “teleporting” food is the Pixel Food Printer, a custom-built robotic arm that prints out tiny little pixel cubes made from a type of edible gel. Each pixel is injected with different flavors, color, nutrients, etc. and combined together into the finished pixelated-looking food, Mashable reports.

Open Meals outlined several ways its Pixel Food Printer could be really useful. For example, we could teleport different dishes from Earth to astronauts living in space, or a cooking show chef could send meals to viewers’ homes.

In principle, the Foodini sounds like the ultimate laziness aid: press a button to print your ravioli.

Edible 3D-printed restaurant

Food Ink is the world’s first restaurant serving 3D-printed food with 3D-printed utensils at 3D printed tables.

The company, which officially opened in London in July 2016, has been popping up in locations all over the world.
