We may have seen many 3D printers that can create complex 3D objects by melting plastic. What we have today is no different than that, except instead of plastic objects this machine prints out chocolates.
A company called “Choc Edge” has introduced a new chocolate printer called the “Choc Creator” which seeks to “revolutionise chocolate making for a creative, pleasurable and healthy consumption experience”.
This incredible device eliminates the need for the meticulous hands of a pastry chef. It allows the creator to print 3 dimensional confections simply at the press of a button.

How Choc Creator Works
Choc Creator uses molten chocolate which it slowly places into layers into any 3D shape you want using an open source 3-D software that controls the print head ( which is basically a syringe).
The syringe can be changed during the printing process to utilize different types of chocolates. Below, you can see the printer in action.
This new printer comes with a pretty hefty price tag with a retail price of £2,888 (more than $4500U.S.).
