CES 2014: Eye Candy? ChefJet 3D Prints 3D Confectionery

ChefJet

3D printing has come a long way since its advent. Food printers are something that a lot of people have been working on (given the high demand and interest in these devices), as are candy printers. For the latter, 3D Systems is all too happy to introduce the ChefJet Pro, which they unveiled at CES 2014.

Two different models were announced: the ChefJet Pro (under $10,000), which will be able to print colorful 3D confectionery, and the ChefJet 3D (under $5,000), which can only print monochrome treats.

Conceptual ‘Copy & Paste’ Tool is a Portable Scanner and Printer In One

Copy Paste

Do you copy and paste stuff a lot when you’re on the computer? It simplifies a lot of tasks and doesn’t take more than few seconds to do if you’re familiar with the usual shortcuts. Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could somehow do the same in real life?

That’s what the folks behind the Copy & Paste tool are envisioning with their concept design. It looks like one of those scanning guns that cashiers use to scan the code on the stuff that you’re buying. Only this time, you’re supposed to move the device over whatever it is you want to copy and paste.

The time has come. 3D printers can now be used to print 3D printers. At least, that’s the case with RepRap, which is short for “replicating rapid prototype.” The project was started by engineer Adrian Bowyer in 2005, and he was quickly joined by others who wanted to take the 3D printing movement to the next level.

One member of the RepRap team, Nicholas Seward, recently created a couple of 3D printers that are almost vitamin-free.

You Too Can Disappoint Your Kids With The 3D Sand Castle Printer

By David Ponce

Just look at those “creations.” They were made with the Spilling Funnel XXL. You put the water in, and the sand, and then it mixes into a sludge which pours from the spout, allowing you to create layer after layer of whatever you want. In principle you could potentially make pretty things with it, but if even the product shots show you a disgraceful sack of sand poo that tries to pass as something recognizable, you know your kids’ attempts will likely be even worse. Maybe if you set their expectations right and sell them on how this isn’t meant to make castles and turtles and other sandcastle-y things, but instead it’s an abstract art instrument… Maybe then they won’t feel inadequate? We’re not sure, parenting seems hard. We can however tell you that it’s $9.

Star Micronics SM-T300 Printer Is Made Just For Your Smartphone

By David Ponce

There are times when you need something printed on a good ole piece of dead tree. It happens. And the Star Micronics SM-T300 is a small and rugged little printer that can get it done for you. It connects to your device (including the iPad, iPhone or Android device) via WiFi or Bluetooth and its battery lasts up to 11 hours between charges. Its ruggedness adheres to the IP54 international standard, meaning it’s dustproof and waterproof, and can be dropped without worry from as much as 1.5 meters high. From the looks of it the printing is the thermographic kind, which is a little like the receipts you get while shopping. Not exactly high quality stuff there, but when you need something on paper, it’ll work in a jiffy.

There’s no word on price or availability.
