3D-Print a Replica of Your Face in Chocolate
(Daily Mail) A company called Choc Edge has designed a machine that allows customers to order a 3D-printed replica of their own faces. Customers can send an image of themselves through the company’s website and the specialized 3D printing machine then creates a thick-layered chocolate portrait for between £50 and £80.
The machine, called Choc Creator, works by squirting out chocolate according to computer instructions and allows a user to build any shape they like out of the sweet liquid. The Choc Creator can print layers of dark, milk or white chocolate onto any flat surface including cakes and biscuits to create different shapes, designs and logos. The company was set up in 2011 by Dr Liang Hao of the University of Exeter in Devon and has since sold the machines to companies across the globe.
