My Printer Ran Out Of Jelly

This is a food-printer, Being developed at Cornell University, this device allows 3D food objects to be "printed" by a syringe whose movements are determined from computer blueprints and models. Different syringes contain different ingredients allowing the designer complete flexibility.

These "fab@home" machines have been used to print chocolates, cookies, and even domes of turkey meat. So far only liquids and gels can be used in the syringe, but researches have begun playing around with cheese, cake batter, chocolate, and dough.
