3D fruit printer could crank out Frankenfruits on demand

Well, that's just what Cambridge, UK-based design company Dovetailed is promising, with its 3D fruit printer. The machine was unveiled last Saturday at the Tech Food Hack event in Cambridge. Although details on how it works are still a bit sparse, it is said to utilize "a molecular-gastronomy technique called spherification [that] combines individual liquid droplets with different flavors into a fruit shape." According to a report on 3DPrint, the process likely involves combining fruit puree or juice with sodium alginate and then dripping the mixture into a bowl of cold calcium chloride.
