Guns, prosthetic limbs, toys, horse shoes, wind pipes, jewellery, guitars and one heck of a sad and sombre looking Keanu Reeves figurine; rumour has it that 3D printing is something of a thing now, and according to that list, there's pretty much no end to its technological talents. But what about dinner? Will it make you dinner?
While it can't make you a social life, and it certainly can't make us a new government (sigh), 3D printing CAN make you dinner, and that's thanks to London's first ever 3D printing restaurant. A first for Shoreditch and hosting three days of foodie fun courtesy of printing specialists Food Ink, this off-the-wall dining experiences is not only boasting 3D printed food from Mateu Blanch and Joel Castanye of La Boscana in Spain, the restaurant itself is a homage to this new artistry, propping up guests on 3D printed charies alongside 3D printed forks and a table to boot. First it was chicken in a can.....and now this. Who knows where food will go next.
The 3D printing restaurant in London takes place from Mon 25th – Weds 27th July 2016 at Food Ink, 8 Dray Walk. Spaces are limited to 10 diners per night.
