Good enough to eat

Here’s an enterprising and fun use of a 3D printer, that will make you the envy of your workmates – decorate your lunchtime bento box with cool edible patterns. That’s exactly what Japanese student Yoshihiro Asano from Keio University in Tokyo has done. His converted Solidoodle printer, which he renamed the LunchBot, deposits detailed patterns made of furikake flakes – a tasty Japanese rice seasoning made of spices, seeds, fish and seaweed – on an edible print bed of rice.  Yum!
