Food printer

This invention out of Cornell U. uses the same idea as the 3-D printer that debuted earlier this year, which can make metallic or plastic objects by laying down layers of material from bottom to top.  Just load edible "inks" into the top, run the desired program, and the machine will squirt out the desired recipe precisely.  Currently only liquid ingredients can be used, but in the future perhaps molecular gastronomy techniques will allow more versatility.

This is pretty neat stuff I think, but I'm a science geek.  How about you?
