As inventors have pushed the envelope in the areas of computers and cell phones, the field of personal chocolate technology has been sadly neglected.
The market would be huge. What home entertainment area is complete without a device that allows you to create your own chocolate concoctions to nosh on as you watch your DVR’d movie and text your friends after updating your Facebook page?
Now British inventors have stepped into that void with a “chocolate printer”. The device would allow its owners to create their own 3D chocolate concoctions. You just melt come chocolate, place it into the printer, and let your creative juices flow. And what would you rather get for Easter — a paper card with colorful bunnies, or a personalized candy card created by a chocolate printer, complete with its own edible ears? Willy Wonka would be proud.
Of course, some impatient chocoholics probably couldn’t resist sticking their heads under the printer jet to get the melted chocolate directly from the source.
