3D printing is getting cooler and cooler by the minute and now, we have Edible Growth, an ongoing project by food designer Chloé Rutzerveld that promises to push the boundaries of food and technology.
After the layers are printed containing seeds, spores and yeast, it takes up to five days for the small plants to mature and grow. As they grow the smell and taste intensifies which is also reflected in the appearance. Although this kind of technology would only really work for herbs or small fungi, it’s still a really neat idea.
It’s up to the person eating it to decide when they would like to eat it. The longer you leave it the stronger the taste becomes.
