Digital Gastronomy

This project from the MIT Media Lab’s Fluid Interfaces Group sounds pretty amazing:

Cornucopia is a concept design for a personal food factory that brings the versatility of the digital world to the realm of cooking. In essence, it is a three dimensional printer for food, which works by storing, precisely mixing, depositing and cooking layers of ingredients.

Even better than this decidedly 2010-sounding piece of tech, however, is the subtitle they’ve given the post announcing it: “Digital Gastronomy.” The term just makes my imagination go wild.
