This 3D printer makes pasta from scratch
When technology and Italian food collide
Some of the top designs out of the 1,300 entries included a pineapple, hollow moon-shaped pasta, and a design that blooms into a rose when boiled.
“It’s something you can’t really imagine,” said Jacqueline Delgado, the business manager of Barilla’s food innovation company, according to Saveur. “There are so many flavours and shapes that you don't realize you are eating pasta. It's hard to explain in words.”
While it may be hard to imagine, the process behind 3D-printed pasta comes to life in only a matter of minutes. Building the pieces layer by layer, the machine can stream dough along the X, Y, and Z axes through a small nozzle.
So the next time you see pasta on the shelves, you may not even recognize it!
