A German candy maker is hoping to tempt the taste-buds of Berliners with customized fruit gum sweets made with a 3D printer. They can print 100 different shapes. The 3D printer is controlled by a kid-friendly application. You can even draw your own designs. You can print different types of shape and texts from eight different flavors. This is considered as the real magic where your own creations can come directly to your life.
The makers hope that allowing customers to choose their own custom-made sweets will give the printed product a sense of magic. Candy is the perfect medium to bring this really cool concept to the consumer in a friendly and fun way.
The Magic Candy Factory focuses on the idea that science actually is magic and if we look at it that way and we focus on the amazing ability to create, and not the cold technology side, then we create an incredible experience for the customer and start getting people warmed up to 3D-printed food. Customers can choose from a range of designs and flavors on a tablet.
The trade-marked 3D printer then extrudes lines of the heated fruit gum mixture to build the design into a 3D product. The heated fruit gum mixture is transmitted via a nozzle and line by line, it creates a shape or a word. Because the fruit gum mixture dries immediately, we are able to put one layer on top of the other. In this way, they achieved the 3D effect.
