(3Ders.org)  3D printed food is a key area of focus of Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO). A CSIRO food structure team led by Dr. Amy Logan has just launched a three-year study into the personalized fabrication of smart foods—foods that are 3D printed and contain nutritional contents customized to the eater.
The idea is to develop a personal food manufacturing system that could create “tailored diets” based on a person’s genetic information, physiological state, and lifestyle. As Dr. Logan explained, “The vision we have is that in 20 years time, someone would wake up in the morning [and] their physiological markers will have already been measured in a really unintrusive way, potentially through their sweat while they’ve been sleeping using biosensor technology.”
