3D Food Printing at NOW-Reading 4.0

Last Week, author Stephan R. Meier gave us a glimpse into the future at the presentation of his thrilling science-fiction book “NOW”.
The visionary “Reading 4.0” took place in Munich. Alongside robots and drones, our 3D Food Printer Bocusini® was again part of it and provided the guests of the exciting reading with NOW-Logos made of marzipan. These were highly sought-after: both, as nourishment for nerves and as a beautiful event-give-away.

3D Selfie of Barack Obama

Coming week, Bocusini will participate in the Global Food Innovation Summit Seeds&Chips where Barack Obama will be keynote speaker. Therefore we thought that it would be cool to 3D food print him in Marzipan. So we did.

And here it is – a sweet 3D Selfie of Barack Obama:

 

Did you know that Obama was the first president of the USA who was 3D scanned? The 3D scan was performed by a team of the Smithsonian Institute.

By the way: Bocusini will be speaker in the session about 3D Food Printing on 11th of May! Yes, it is still unbelieveable: at the same conference as the former president of the USA…

More than 100 Bocusini 3D food printing systems meanwhile sucessfully shipped

We are really happy to tell you, that all preordered 3D food printing systems have meanwhile left our facilities. The whole team likes to thank you all for your faith in our project and the patience during the last months.

 

The development of such a new and innovative product is always a huge experience of sun and rain, highlights and drawbacks. Therefore, I would additionally take the opportunity to thank the whole team being involved in the development, production and fulfilment at Print2Taste. They had been facing a lot of challenges concerning the  Bocusini 3D food printer, the printable food products and the user interface.

Many thanks also to our partner printrbot and here especially to Brook and Byrren and the whole team behind for a lot of fruitful and challenging discussions and the support with the present printer system.

We hope, that for all of us, this will only be the first step to a new world of incredible impressive printable food products. At the moment, we are aiming on the development of new use cases or business models for our Bocusini owners. This could be for example the print of company logos or personalised messages on desert plates or cakes or the production of give-aways for customers. Economically much more interesting use cases will soon be visible here on bocusini.com.

Bocusini is still the worldwide only universal plug & play 3D food printing system. To confirm this, we will soon launch 4 additional printable food products available as refill for the Bocusini system.

Skyscraper Day

Did you know that there is the „Skyscraper Day“ on 3rd of September? For us, this is a good opportunity for reporting on our first large give-away production and for launching the video of producing 450 miniature Upper-West skyscraper give-aways made out of marzipan.
The occasion was the topping-out ceremony of the Upper West on 19th of May, which was build next to the “Gedächtniskirche” in Berlin. Each guest should be provided with his or her own miniature Upper West as take away. Thus, we produced them at our facilities in Freising and brought them safely to Berlin. Additionally we accompanied the event in the Upper West with a demonstration showing the Bocusini® 3D Food Printing System live in action.
