And I thought Star Trek was a little far fetched


If you have never watched Star Trek you probably wont know what I am on about for the first part of this blog but you should still find this pretty interesting! In Star Trek their is a device, on-board the star ships called a replicator.

“…a replicator is a machine capable of creating (and recycling) objects. Replicators were originally seen used to synthesize meals on demand…”

What a crazy idea! Like something that far fetched would ever become reality? Well…. Although scientificically and technologically the idea would be imposible (as far as I can see) the concept of a machine that can “synthesize meals on demand” is a reality. Marcelo Coelho and Amit Zoran from MIT recenly posted a concept design of the Cornucopia.

Cornucopia: Digital Gastronomy

Cornucopia: Digital Gastronomy

This inovation brings us one step closer to fiction becoming reality and shows that the people at MIT willing “To boldly go where no man has gone before”
