we can print food? where’d you read that??
on the article you posted (i heard about the idea ages ago, didn’t realize we could already do it).
The benefit to society is huge. No more shipping huge amounts of products around the world. No more shipping the broken products back. No more child labour. We’ll be able to print food for hungry people. We’ll be able to share not only a recipe, but the full meal.
the ability to print relatively simple objects (even food) is already here and will continue to get more refined over time.
Star Trek or what? 😛
