Scientists at Cornell University's Computational Synthesis Lab (CCSL) have built a 3D printer that prints food, reports PC World. Yes, the printer, part of the Fab@Home project, allows you to use raw food as "ink" for creating your culinary concoctions.

It works like this. Input a recipe and sit back as your meal prints itself out, perfect for the cooking impaired. You could download the recipes of master chefs and whip up a delicious and nutritious meal.

Imagine sending someone your chocolate chip cookie recipe over Facebook and having them print the cookies out, tasting as if you had just made them yourself. The team is still working out the kinks with printing using liquid ingredients, but hopes that one day these 3D food printers become the norm in kitchens worldwide.

Hmmm, I have enough trouble getting my printer to print paper copies. And I love to cook. There's an oppportunity here. Perhaps others will be printing out my recipes some day.
