Star Trek Food Replicator for real................?
Introducing Cornucopia, the food printer

The food printer is at the concept design stage, and would work by storing and refrigerating ingredients and then mixing them, cooking layers of the mixture and printing them onto a serving tray. The concept design was introduced by two graduate students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Fluid Interfaces Group Media Lab: designer/engineer in algorithmic image process development Amit Zoran, and designer and research assistant Marcelo Coelho.

The food printing process begins with selecting the required food canisters in which ingredients are stored and kept refrigerated. Ingredients are then fed into a mixing chamber and the mixture is extruded and deposited in layers of various and complex combinations of ingredients. During deposition of the layers onto the serving tray the ingredients are either cooked or cooled in the chamber or by heating/cooling tubes attached to the printing head.

I have the inside scoop on this.

Yes, a food printer. NOT!

It is an atomizer. It can print GOLD! if you wanted it too.

Seriously doubt they will allow that to happen. But if it is made up of molecules and your printing it, lmao. Printing it, makes no sense but it's third dimensional printing I guess. Layer by layer it aligns atoms and makes molecular structure. Yes eventually it will make food. But just as east it will be able to make counterfeit notes, or a gun, or laptop or anything made of matter and energy in the form solid, gas or liquid. Eventually it won't matter. Only thing they can't do will be replicating a living creature.

That will be done by vibration of the atoms themselves. Teleportation!
